Michael Veitch and Simon Oats creating ‘Mystery In The Air’. Photo supplied

An old mystery is new again in Byron Bay this week.

Veteran comedian Michael Veitch is back doing what he is loved for – original comedy. Simon Oats joins him on stage in a production this week – Mystery in the Air.

This is a comedy that crosses politically correct boundaries but also tugs on the heart-strings.

Tune in as comedy legend Michael Veitch and handsome young blade Simon Oats transport us back to when radio was king.

Mystery in the Air takes us into the 1940s radio studio and the drama comes from more than just their scripts. Yes, it’s mayhem in the studio as things boil over both on and off the air.

The star of the show is that beloved veteran of radio, Clinton Webb. Change, however, is afoot.

Two radio plays, twenty voices and a pile of live-to-air sound effects to get through – all performed live by our two chaps, the show must go on.

Get into the mystery at the Byron Theatre 7.30pm, Wednesday May 1.
