The Daffodil

It’s spring, new beginnings, daffodils. In honour of the season that’s in it, I’m reposting a podcast of my 2013 radio drama ‘The Daffodil’.

Set on the fictional Irish island of Trafadden, The Daffodil tells the tale of the relationship between Eurovision wannabe ‘Liam Egan’ and Eurovision hasbeen ‘Banba’, both mired in denial for different reasons.

Starring Jenni Ledwell and Michael Power and directed by Jim Nolan.

The Top 5%

Good Valentine’s day news from the Beeb yesterday; of the almost 3,000 script submissions to the BBC Writersroom scheme, my screenplay, ‘The Hole in the Moon’ has now shortlisted to the final 5%  full read. Another month before final decisions are made – but I’m happy to have made it thus far.

With my radio series ‘The Daffodil’ kicking off next week – 2014 is striking a good pose.


Daffodil Wrapped

Daffodil Wrapped

Sorry about my silence of late. I’ve been very busy with a number of projects most particularly ‘The Daffodil’ – a radio drama series in five episodes which I wrote, produced and wrapped this weekend in Ireland.
Starring Michael Power and Jenni Ledwell, with Jim Nolan in the director’s chair and Eugene Sully on sound – and musical arrangements by Natasha Purwin and Will Fergusson. It was a blast to make.
Set on the fictional Irish island of Trafadden, The Daffodil tells the tale of the relationship between Eurovision wannabe ‘Liam Egan’ and Eurovision hasbeen ‘Banba’, both mired in denial for different reasons. It’s got laughs (I hope) and music and brio – all of which were brought to the table by a stellar cast and crew.
I don’t have the dates of broadcast yet, but expect it will be in early January 2014. I will let you all know. Promise to get back on top of regular posts very soon.
