Strange Meeting

Scheduled to mark Armistice Day, BBC Radio 4 Extra will broadcast Peters Wolf's Play "Strange Meeting" on Thursday 8 November at 11.15 a.m.

The play is inspired by Wilfred Owen’s First World War poem and dramatises events leading up to Owen’s death on the eve of the Armistice. Alex is the Captain and Paul Rhys is Wilfred Owen.

What Love Sounds Like

What Love Sounds Like centres around the meeting of a blind man, Dom, and a deaf woman, Thea, in a faith-healer's waiting room. Dom has only recently gone blind and is at odds with the world and himself. Thea, using her computer voice generator, plies him with questions - particularly about an old, painful relationship which Dom is initially reluctant to talk about. As the play progresses we realise that all is not quite as it seems, and that this meeting may have profound consequences for them both. Alex Jennings and Juliet Stevenson star in a new play by award-winning playwright Peter Souter.

The production can be heard on BBC Radio 4 this Wednesday 24 October at 14.15.
