Thursday Night Radio Drama - Rhys Adrian - Passing Through

Pat sits behind his newspaper at the same table in the same corner of the same pub every evening. He's a railwayman and functions like a clock. He talks to no one and no one talks to him.

But one evening a stranger enters into conversation with him and the pattern is broken.

Rhys Adrian's drama stars Hugh Burden as Richard, Harry Towb as Patrick and Diana Bishop as Beth.

Director: John Tydeman

There are a lot of people who spent their career writing large numbers of radio plays, some of them were pretty good.  Rhys Adrian wrote more than thirty plays for radio, all of them were produced.  I'm going to concentrate on some of the best of them, as I find their work online.

It makes a change from the cop-opera or sit-coms on TV.   You've got to pay attention to what's being said.
