Running To Stand Still

Presented by The OFFSTAGE Theatre Group, in association with Wireless Theatre  (supported by BBC Radio Gloucestershire), and in aid of Invest In ME.

This is an original 60-minute audio play (with songs), featuring professional actors, with cameos from presenters on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Gloucestershire and Sky Arts 1, that deals with the illness M.E. as its focal point.

It is written by a sufferer and it specifically addresses what happens to relationships around an individual who is stricken by the illness and should educate those that don’t know much about this life-threatening condition. For those that have experienced the illness (first or second hand), it’s a story you can empathise with. For those who haven’t, it’s a story you can sympathise with.

It first toured around schools and colleges in 1997, exactly 15 years ago, as well as being performed at an International Conference about the illness it was trying to raise awareness of (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). It also had the distinction of being the first play to be broadcast on BBC Radio Gloucestershire in 1996.

This is a charitable endeavour, which sees all profits going to Invest In ME (www.investinme.org); who are fundraising to set up a research centre into the much-misunderstood and life-threatening disease.

Actor/Director/Writer and M.E. sufferer, Barnaby Eaton-Jones said: “The script was first written in 1992, which makes this the 20th anniversary of that event. But, a lot has changed since then. It was often sad, very frustrating and constantly bewildering to read so much new research since the play was last performed and find that there is still prejudice, wrong information and lack of knowledge out there in the general public. Hopefully, this play will play a small part in helping to redress the balance.”

Starring: Jilly Breeze, Barnaby Eaton-Jones, Dawn Stanley, Rob Leetham, Rowena Perkins 

The real-life radio personalities and presenters featured were, in alphabetical order... 

Richard Atkins, Claire Carter, Dominic Cotter, Rachel Darcy, Faye Hatcher, Steve Kitchen and Annie McKie

LLAMADGEDDON PART 1

No Cause for a Llama

Lllanageddon_Smallest

"These guys are the 'South Park' of radio drama as far as I'm concerned!"

Frederick Greenhalgh,

Radio Drama Revival

The World is Broken… Unfortunately, someone thought these idiots could help.

“Hear this, I have little time left and my old, frail breath is leaving me at last. It is the end of days, the end of this fragile time: judgment day. It is the time where people must pay for their actions and the sin of us all will be held to account. It will be a terrible time: a time of fire; a time of demons; of beings so monstrous they have long slumbered silently beneath green fields for countless eons until thought only something of awful legend…

Man must be ready: man will fight against man, brother against brother, angel against devil…  You have been chosen. You will need all your strength; all your mental faculties; all your unfailing, unwavering courage and, most of all, all the goodness and righteousness in your hearts…” “Sorry, I was having a lovely, big scratch. What?” “We’re screwed.”

Contains some mild bad language.

Gonad Saffron, having failed to answer God’s general knowledge question correctly has doomed the world to a fiery end. (He really should have chosen snooker.)In an attempt to save the planet, the Llamas have journeyed to ‘Sideways Earth’.

Will they manage to re-forge the spare ‘Anklet of Power’ in Arnold’s Volcano? Will they evade the Devil who is determined to stop them? Will Blake the Stalker get to sing a song? And will any of it have any bearing on God’s decision to destroy the world (mostly out of boredom)?

Pig In Boots - An Audio Pantomime

Come and join Patsy and Tom-Tom in Panto-Opolis as they travel across the country, encountering an ever-growing mix of characters while they a plan to scam wealthy victims out of their riches with a pyramid scheme based on non-existent real estate.
