Jade City Pharaoh

Playwright Howard Craft originally conceived Jade City Pharaoh as a play for the Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern. The concept morphed into a comic book. Frank Stasio, host of WUNC’s The State of Things, was in the audience and was inspired to turn it into a radio show.

The storyline follows the main character, Herald M.F. Jones, as he protects the metropolis of Jade City, an American city with a strong resemblance to Durham, North Carolina.  Born and raised in the African-American neighborhood of Concrete Falls, Jones is a mortal with some exceptional abilities.

Jade City Pharaoh stars Mike Wiley.  The series is written by Howard Craft, with music by the Apple Juice Kid. WUNC’s Frank Stasio is the producer/director.
