Jumbo & Number One, The North Sea
Radio Vision (Colchester, England)
Radio Vision was formed in order to produce audio plays as script in hand, live performances on stage, in front of an audience. With Sound Effects pre-recorded, the plays are best described as almost a hybrid, offering a unique experience for audiences, who get to “see” the audio plays as well as listen to the scripts. The structure means that audiences will often get to see at first-hand, the skills of actors, as they slip seamlessly from one character to another within the same play. The plays are performed with minimal set and maximum atmosphere!
Anyone familiar with Colchester will know the iconic and much-loved landmark that is Jumbo the water tower. In Jumbo, Steve and Alfie set off to surprise Alfie’s girlfriend Mary on her birthday but not all goes according to plan as they enter the water tower and climb to the top.
NUMBER ONE, THE NORTH SEA
Retired GP Larry Bernstein has a secret. As secrets go, this one is as big as they come. His family watch the secret unfold on National television while they go into hiding on Larry’s instructions. Not even Larry’s wife Clare, or son James had any idea of the lengths that Larry has gone to, to fight for his passion and fulfil his dream. Now the secret is out and Larry has only limited time to explain and justify his actions.
