THE golden age of cinema and radio is making its return in a production of a classic radio play hitting the stage at Kingston City Hall.

The Mystery of a Hansom Cab is set in the 19th century St Kilda mansion of the exclusive Melbourne Club, the criminal haunts of Little Bourke St and a horse drawn hansom cab.
