Drama on the air

Mansfield Courier - - Courier | Opinions / People -

CAN you re­mem­ber lis­ten­ing to ra­dio plays on the wire­less?

Or maybe you have never heard a ra­dio play and won­der what it is like.

Ra­dio plays are back again in Mans­field thanks to an ini­tia­tive be­tween Rochford Pro­duc­tions and Ra­dio Mans­field in as­so­ci­a­tion with Arts Mans­field.

On Fe­bru­ary 7, ‘The Bur­gundy Par­rot Mur­der’ by lo­cal writer Carol Low­den will launch at 9am, with fur­ther broad­casts on Fe­bru­ary 14, 21 and 28.

An Agatha Christie style ‘who-doneit’ set in Scot­land and fea­tur­ing a par­rot that talks too much, ‘The Bur­gundy Par­rot Mur­der’ prom­ises to be highly en­ter­tain­ing.

Di­rected by Jeremy Kaye and nar­rated by Colin Rochford, Lex Ross, Jeremy Kaye, Mary Web­ster, John Web­ster, Kammy Hunt and Ian Mal­lyon all bring the hi­lar­i­ous char­ac­ters to life.

“Tar­cutta Truck­stop” by Rick Lind­say is the March pro­duc­tion which tells the story of peo­ple who meet at the half­way point on the road be­tween Mel­bourne and Syd­ney.

For more in­for­ma­tion about the ra­dio plays con­tact Colin Rochford on 0414 282 647.
