Nick Warburton’s new play Psalm, first heard on BBC Radio 4 and directed by Jonquil Panting, will soon be available from Radius and will be reviewed in the next issue of Radius Performing.
The play is based on the fact that in earlier times, a loophole in the law meant that anyone who proved that they could read from the Bible could have their case tried in an ecclesiastical court as if they were clergy, and that their sentence would be lighter.

Following the Society’s AGM in the morning, BBC Radio & TV dramatist Nick Warburton will give a two hour workshop on the theme of ‘Remembering’. As the centenary of the end of WW1 approaches, Nick will suggest ways of using drama to explore the experiences of soldiers, to remember the dead, and also to ask questions about who should be remembered, why and in what ways.
Nick is the author of several episodes in the acclaimed BBC Radio series Tommies and also wrote the short play Memorial in the Radius collection ‘Sacred Spaces’.
The Workshop is open to non-members. If you would like to attend, please email email@example.com.

Nick Warburton Workshop at the Radius AGM
Bristol Cathedral Chapter House
16 September 2017
On Saturday 20 May a group of Radius members joined the St George's Players, Beckenham, for an acting workshop led by Will Featherstone. After some lively theatre games the group worked individually on creating a character. In the final session the characters met each other at a school reunion and talked about their lives.
Will Featherstone has played leading roles at The Globe and gave us his list of acting rules, which will appear in Radius Performing. Will stepped in at short notice and David Sturzaker, who was billed to lead the workshop, will do an Acting workshop for Radius in 2018.
