Drama at Radio Verulam thanks to Company of Ten

Abbey Theatre-based Company of Ten has joined forces with St Albans’ own Radio Verulam to produce a number of radio plays to be broadcast on Sunday evenings over the next couple of months.

The company recorded and aired its first play, an adaptation of “The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Mark Waghorn, from Radio Verulam’s newly refurbished studios last autumn, and has just finished recording a complete set of plays which have all been written by members of the established CoT Writer’s Group.


This week's gold packed programme starts with the biggest hits and stories making the news from August 1979, chances are you will hear The Electric Light Orchestra, ABBA and The Bellamy Brothers between 9 and 10. Just after 10-00, Ken will open his nostalgia bag and will remember John Lennon's 1975 covers album Rock 'N' Roll and will give you his opinion on ‘Beautiful’ - The Carole King Musical.
