WHAT IS A RADIO PLAY?
Read in an authentic studio setting, these shows will be brought to life with live sound effects in the style of vintage radio drama, live on stage.
A radio play or radio drama is a performance which has little or no visual components, and depends on dialogue, music and sound effects to tell its story.
This Windsor on Air Season, directed by Roy Marsden, celebrates this remarkable and ground-breaking medium by staging it for a live audience.
