About This Show

Cedric Maud’s a man with a plan. He and his assistant Grace believe a play made specially for the wireless could be just the thing to entertain listeners and put the newly formed BBC on the map. With the broadcast date fast approaching, they ask an impresario with a reputation for producing ‘avant-garde’ theatre to direct the programme. He’s not sure how a play could work without a set and costumes and with the audience unable to see the actors, but he knows he’s not letting the job go to that upstart Noel Coward. So, supported by his wife’s unique brand of guidance, he sets to work. Will they be able to find a writer willing to take the job? Will the actors be able to hold the listeners attention with only their voices? And how will audiences know what on earth is going on?To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the UK’s first ever radio play, this hilarious comedy caper charts the (almost) true story of how radio plays came to be.
