Christopher Green - Like an Angel Passing through My Room

4 Extra Debut. A story about the unconditional love of a devoted fan. At a party, Chris finally gets to meet his idol, Frida from Abba, and a connection is made.

This is a story about love. The unconditional love of a devoted fan. At a party Christopher Green meets Anni-Frid Lyngstad aka Frida from Abba. He is the after dinner entertainment. She is a party guest. What starts as a 'I'm your biggest fan' conversation turns into a long chat about the nature of loving someone you've never met. From Olivier award-winning writer Christopher Green.

This is a project several years in the making; what started as an upbeat reflection on fame and the notion of being a fan, developed into a meditation on the communication between two people and coping with the blows life deals. Green's partner died shortly after recording the interview with Frida, in which they talked about her long recovery from the death of her husband in 1999. This play is deeply personal and reflective but with a firmly comic sensibility. The journey takes in life and death, and some of the territory in between, with a heavy emphasis on pop music.

Christopher Green's work is shamelessly entertaining: from the political bite of country music icon Tina C (star of four Radio 4 comedy series), and Ida Barr (star of Radio 4's Artificial Hip Hop) to commissions from the RSC, the British Library, the Tate gallery, the V&A, the Science Museum and the Barbican.
