Here is something a little from my usual posts which are always visual. This one is an audio experience.
Friend and playwright Rachel Cochrane finally got her long anticipated web baby launched last month. Listen up North is a website devoted to the talents of writers in the north of England. The content includes audio dramas, poetry, monologues, interviews novels and me. Listeners can log on and download all kinds of fodder for their listening pleasure and it is free of charge.
The latest addition is a two part radio play called Oranges And Lemons and I play the central character Ellie, she has a kind heart, a troubled past and an alarming future, only she does not know that when the story starts.
Rachel describes the process of creating Oranges and Lemons and Listen Up North in her blog. The website has taken two years of constant work by Rachel and Oranges and Lemons is now available to download. If you like it please give your support by passing the link to friends who may be interested in the spoken word, it's not all in funny accents. I shall recommend it to friends who enjoy listening to audio books whilst dog walking or driving their cars..or stencilling.
