Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

“No, Radio Actually”

Mark Lawson gives us a thought about radio plays that has been rattling around in our brains for a while. Audio drama is a testing ground for plays and movies. It gives writers a chance to practice dialogue and concepts to far flung audiences in ways that never would have seen the light of day before. Harold Pinter and Tom Stoppard are two names that come up immediately when thinking about great British Playwrights.

Of course in this Guardian article, when Spielberg came knocking, legend has it that Stoppard had a message for him.

  1. I agree. Our recent release of THE STAR ANGEL was produced to be a demo for an animated film, and we also have a theatrical stage script, and TV Special version we are touting to various producers.
