Bite Sized Radio Plays: Brain Pathways
This play has a light-hearted focus on two unsupportive characters – the critical brainwaves that live inside Sally’s head called BP1 and BP2. We hear their overlapping comments about Sally’s fraught lifestyle and the medications she uses that should cure her health problems, but actually cause her some silly side effects. It’s a rollicking story that intertwines Sally’s attempts to solve her health issues with her attempts to learn how to play a ukulele. Sally is played by Ann Poppelwell. BP1 is played by Sue Ruffel, and BP2 is played by Katie Locke. The play was written and directed by Robyn Karakasch with sound engineering by Warren Barnett.
Bite Sized Radio Plays: Better Burglars
Robyn launched Bite Sized Radio Plays to coincide with Highland FM’s Kind Hearts Campaign. In this first bite sized delight, two experienced burglars tell the story of how they met and how their lives changed to a kinder way of living. Robyn recruited Mark Smith for the role of Burglar Bill and Michaela Bolzan for the role of Burglar Bessie. Interviewer Mary Mayberry, played by Daina Heatley, sits down with these married burglars to find out how they turned their lives around and spread kindness through the community.
