Jason in Radio Play "The UN"

Post by servalan » Mon Jun 29, 2020 5:40 am

I only discovered this by accident - Jason was in a two-part radio play last week. He plays Richard, who works for the UN in New York.

Here is an excerpt from the description:

"... when one beautiful clear-blue morning, a man named Fazal inveigles his way into his office with information that Pakistan has covertly moved three nuclear warheads into Saudi territory, Richard should know to be extra cautious and simply call Security."

Here is a link to part 1, which links to part 2.

Each part is 45 min. You can listen worldwide. It is available for over a year.

I listened to both parts today and I thought it was magnificent. Jason was amazing and the tension grew throughout the narrative.

Was this recorded somehow during lockdown as the pandemic was mentioned so it must have been a recent production.

A great piece of work.

Thank you Servalan for the link.

This was really good. Listened to it over 2 days. Glad that I was able to move it up to where I left off. Thanks, Servalan. Great find.

It was good to hear Jason using a Liverpool accent, which he rarely does - although it wasn't a really strong one.

Glad you all enjoyed it. Radio drama is something that can be done in Lockdown, as the actors can work from home. Then the techies get the sound in sync and the right background noises so people sound as if they are in the same room.

Must admit I loved the accent as well. Strong piece of work as well.
