Three new radio plays have been announced, all with terrific actors!
In order of time, there will be:
- Friday 23 December 2016 at 2.15 pm on BBC Radio 4, “Midnight At Christmas“ with Luke Newberry in the role of Matt. “A magical drama, set when Christmas Eve turns into Christmas Day. Caught in a snowstorm on the way to see his ex, Matt is taken on an unexpected journey by a series of strangers with a surprising interest in his love life” – Written by Elliott Kerrigan. Produced by Charlotte Riches. Link www.bbc.co.uk
- Friday 23 December 2016 at 8 pm on BBC Radio 2, “A Christmas Carol” for “Friday Night Is Music Night – Merry Christmas!” with Lee Ingleby as Bob Cratchit, Mark Gatiss as Scrooge and others actors, recorded at the Royal Festival Hall. The concert includes six scenes from the Dickens classic, recorded in a new process that aurally puts the audience into the supernatural world of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Here some images Ingleby and Gatiss shared on Twitter:
- We have to wait a little bit more for the BBC Radio Drama play “Love (sic)“, the first work by Jessica Swale, with John Heffernan in the role of Tom. It should be broadcast on Wednesday 22 March 2017. There’s no a page on their website bbc.co.uk, yet, but here two images shared by the writer on Twitter:
- And, last but not least, the radio play “Home Front” is back with season 9 on BBC Radio 4 from today, available to listen on mp3 as single episode or as omnibus as well: bbc.co.uk
I love radio plays!
