Sony Radio Award

I’m pleased to say that ‘Use It Or Lose It’ won a Silver in the Drama category of the Sony Radio Award.
Here’s what the judges said, “In awarding the Silver to this production, the drama panel was very impressed by the narrative structure and the way the sound employed played as much a part as the dialogue in telling this moving story of the loss of intellectual and sensory faculties. We thought it was a beautifully conceived idea, wonderfully executed.”

Use it or Lose it (Radio Drama)

I enjoyed playing  the parts of nurse Angela and Kitty in this Falling Tree Production for BBC Radio 3, directed by Iain Chambers.

With Dame Harriet Walter and David Horovitch starring, it combined narrated fiction with observations from the world of history and culture.

A radiophonic exploration of one man’s failing mind by the American musician and cartoonist Peter Blegvad.

Reviews

“I thought that was really pretty horribly funny… Tasteful the tale isn’t, but enjoyable for sure.” – Ramsey Campbell, Britain’s greatest living horror writer (‘Britain’s most respected living horror writer’, according the Oxford Companion to English Literature)

“These podcasts really are of high quality. The scripts are witty, the voice-acting accomplished, and the production quite professional…The comedy is of the best British kind; politically incorrect, biting satire where no subject matter is taboo. The third episode almost had me choking on my coffee when one of the characters started talking the specifics of lesbian love-making!” – Doc Horror
