The latest initiative to come from the Sherman 5 project is a series of Lights Down, Listen Sessions in collaboration with BBC Wales Radio Drama. The first event will be held on 31 October, at the Sherman Theatre at 6.30pm.
Come along to the Sherman to listen, with other audience members, to a BBC Wales radio drama by Welsh and Wales-based writers. After hearing the play in the Sherman Studio there will be the opportunity to meet someone involved with the production: sometimes it might be the writer, on other occasions it may be an actor who performed in the radio play or the director.
The first event is The Devil’s Violin, a magical, murderous and musical fairytale by Lucy Rivers. Perfect for Halloween.
Life for 16 year old Hannah is pretty miserable. Her mother's a drunk and her baby brother Gethin is an evil little gremlin child. But then one night she meets an alluring violinist who plays the most seductive melodies. He offers Hannah the chance to fulfil her darkest desires. How far will Hannah go to get what she wants?
This is a wickedly playful dark modern fable with an original score composed and performed by Lucy Rivers.
Lucy Rivers is a multi-talented writer, musician and performer. She's achieved great success with her company Gaggle Babble on acclaimed shows such as The Bloody Ballad - uniquely fusing music and theatre, humour and the macabre. The Devil's Violin is her first radio drama.
