UPDATE: September 2nd 2011
We got 'Pick Of The Week' BBC R4 - Ian McMillan reviews 'A Valentine at Waterloo' and gave 'Verse Illustrated' a big thumbs up!
A VALENTINE AT WATERLOO on VERSE ILLUSTRATED
Listen: Wednesday, 23:00 on BBC RADIO 4 & Podcast FREE thereafter
In the third of the new series of illustrated poems, get in your time machines and set your GPS Sat Nav for Sohemia, The French House on the Old Compton Street River in 2058.
'A Valentine at Waterloo' written and performed by Salena Godden
An Orwellian post-apocalyptic vision of our sexual and hedonist future:
"The best show in England-Town, they have real flying femen, ladybirds and buttflies, cock-a-tails and flickbeans, hermaids and mermaids, 8-breasted gooligans, whippers, flippers and strippers-to-go-go, the finest black market moon juice in the whole of downtown Soho..."
Then you'll be transported presently and safely back to 2011 with 'A Hell of a Week' written and performed by the wonderful Scroobius Pip. This should be 'one of the biggest solo spoken word shows ever to be recorded', exclusively for Radio 4. But where exactly is Scroobius Pip...?
Actors: Carl Prekopp, Peter Polycarpou and Jonathan Forbes.
Directed by James Robinson.
