BBC Radio Young Writers: 25 Years On - Listen To My Inside Mind
Wednesday 16 October
BBC RADIO 4 EXTRA
All these years later, Abigail has recently completed a stint as writer in residence at the Tron Theatre (Glasgow) and her play Four Broken Parts has been performed by the National Theatre of Scotland. She writes regularly for radio and the theatre but can still recall the opening night of the radio festival, when a young Steve Coogan performed in the comedy show The Word Made Fresh. She looked around and saw that writing and performing could actually be a career.
This programme is part of a season which celebrates 25 years since radio’s first Young Playwright’s Festival. It was an opportunity for young writers to send their scripts to BBC Radio Drama and write for radio for the first time. Drama producer Jeremy Mortimer has specially chosen 10 plays from the three festivals which will be broadcast throughout the week on Radio 4 Extra.
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1988.
