Without Leaving Your Room

“…it can also be far more adventurous than theatre or film. There’s no need to obey the unities of time and space; we can go anywhere, any time in our imaginations without leaving the room.”- Kate 


Ms. Chisholm certainly has hit squarely upon the nail with this comment. Audio Drama/Radio Drama is such a wide and varied form of entertainment. It can have the grandiose spectacle of a blockbuster film. It can be as as poetically descriptive as a novel. It can be as accessible as a stage play, and it is one thing more than all of those- it is the most intimate of mediums. Read the rest of Kate Chisholm’s article in The Spectator– Why British radio plays can’t compete with those from the Continent (hint: they totally can!)

What kind of fun will be had? Funny you should ask? Among the events, the amazing Shadowlands Theatre Players will be presenting another My Friend Irma script for the occasion starring and reprising in their roles with Colleen MacIssac as Jane and Ali House as the unsinkable Irma. Keith Morrison will also be returning as Irma’s no account boy friend Al, and Guy Earle will be rounding up the gang with some new roles for the performance.
