School Drama

SCHOOL DRAMA aired in 2016 and was a Goldhawk Production for Radio 4. Three 45 minute episodes followed the fortunes of a maverick theatre-director (played by Tom Hollander), who attempts to mount a production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in a modern academy. The production is soon mired in difficulties. The series was shortlisted for the Best Radio Series Award, and was popular and controversial enough to feature on both ‘Pick of the Week’ and ‘Feedback’.

A Kidnapping: Radio4 Drama

‘A Kidnapping’ is a three-part radio play for BBC Radio 4 and enjoyed both critical success and a certain amount of controversy after its recent broadcast. Set in the Philippines, it tells the story of two foolish teachers who realise they have the most extraordinary opportunity. They work at Manila’s top international school, and have open access to the children of the rich and famous. Would it be possible to kidnap a child, and make instant-millions? So quick, so easy, so harmless… The ransom would be paid in cash – fast – and the teachers would be out of the country at the end of their contract. The child would be safe, and they’d be millionaires.

Its working title is “Work Experience,” and the premise is simple: how much mayhem can a group of children cause in their various W.E. placements?
