INK presents a selection of short radio plays written and recorded during the 2020 Lockdown. First broadcast on BBC Radio Suffolk, these wonderful shorts then received a ‘second life’ on the local digital radio station, East Suffolk One.
Written by both new and experienced writers, each piece was recorded by our wonderful INK actors – our grateful thanks to you all! Enjoy …
INK has commissioned playwright, Martyn Wade to tell the dramatic and tragic story of Joe Kennedy Jnr, the elder brother of JFK, who as a young man seemed destined to become President of the United States – until, that is, the Second World War intervened. No Ordinary Joe, No Ordinary Kennedy examines Joe’s complex character, and traces events which led Joe to volunteering for a top-secret and highly dangerous mission, in which he was required to fly a Liberator plane packed with explosives and bail out before it crossed the Channel. Tragically his plane exploded over Blythburgh, Suffolk killing him and his co-pilot, Lt. Wilford John Willy (Bud). This play is to honour them both and all those who flew and lost their lives during WW2.
There 3 plays:
Jane, Joe and the Suffolk Horses by Richard J Hand
The Sound of Robins by Linda Burgess
Suffolk Puncha by Al Tilby
These three audio play are about Suffolk Punch horses and have been produced in collaboration with INK to be part of the autumn programme at White House Farm for Plomesgate Fair launching in September.
