Radio 4: Brief Lives, Series 6: Commissioned Writer
I have been commissioned to write an episode of Brief Lives for Radio 4 (Afternoon play slot). Transmission Summer 2013.
Brief Lives is a series of plays set in a Manchester legal practice. The bulk of the episodes for each series are written by Tom Fry and Sharon Kelly, with occasional guest writers.
I’ll keep you posted as to dates of transmission… ’tis all very exciting…
A new show for and with the Carriageworks Theatre Academy in association with Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah.
Devised by the Academy, written by Lizi Patch and Directed by Lizi Patch and Rebecca Jenkins.
It is 2103
The world is silent. My world is in my hand And my hand scarcely moves. Just the barely perceptible movement of a thumb moving across a tiny keyboard and eyes scanning for response. Hand held world.
It wasn’t like this in 2013.
