Current CADS production

Radio days!

We're currently working on more radio plays for Royston Radio! The first one we submitted was a version of our award-winning play Strangers on a Film, which was broadcast last August, and the second a recording of The Hitch-Hiker by Lucille Fletcher, a play first broadcast in 1941 on the Orson Welles Show on CBS. Our version of Hitch-Hiker was broadcast on Royston Radio on Wednesday 26 June and may well be repeated from time to time, so listen out for it!

Our next radio venture is by an old friend of the group - local writer, actor and director Nick Warburton (who also wrote our one-act contribution to this year's Royston Arts Festival, Don't Blame It On the Boots) - and it's entitled Losing the Plot. Amanda is very keen on her allotment and thinks everyone should feel the same. So when Edward appears on the scene she encourages him to apply for the plot next to her own. But Edward has his own rather idiosyncratic ideas about what to do on an allotment which don't go down well with the other plot holders...

The characters and actors are as follows: 

The play was recorded during April and has now been edited and is likely to be sent to the radio station for broadcast in September. 
We're also working on a fourth radio drama - the one-act thriller Sorry, Wrong Number, also by Lucille Fletcher - which formed the other half of the double bill at the ADC in 2000. The cast for this is:
  • Mrs Stevenson - elderly, neurotic
  • Telephone Operators (6 separate roles including Chief Operator Miss Curtis)
  • 1st Man - heavy-set criminal
  • 2nd Man - also criminal, possibly with foreign accent
  • Information
  • Hospital Receptionist - middle-aged, practical
  • Western Union Employee
  • Sergeant Duffy - experienced police officer
  • Lunch Room Attendant - young, could be either male or female

Beyind this, we have many ideas for future radio recordings, so please check the usual sources.
