|RTE Radio One to broadcast Beatles play on Sunday|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Thursday, 08/18/16 9:30 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
The national broadcaster in Ireland, RTE Radio One, will broadcast the play "Death and the Beatles Fan" by Stephen Kennedy at 8pm on Sunday, August 21.
The play is a black comedy about what happens when Death attempts to kill a Beatles' fan who really has no interest in dying, basically a Beatles-filled spoof of The Seventh Seal. The play will be directed by Gorretti Slavin, and features three great actors for the piece, Jonathan Ryan, Joe Taylor and Joe Hanley.
Beatle fans all over the world will be able to listen to the play at www.rte.ie/radio1/.

Kennedy's play "John Lennon's Last Day" was recently put up by the BBC for the Imison Award, an award in the UK which is presented annually to the best audio drama script by a new writer. The play, performed by Ian Hart, was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 last October, to mark what would have been John Lennon's 75th birthday.
His most recent stage play "Pete Best of The Beatles," which had its debut run at the New Theatre in Dublin in February, to full houses and standing ovations, returns in the autumn.
