GUERRILLA RADIO PLAYS

Lovecraft (Not the sex shop in Cardiff)

Lovecraft ( Not the sex shop in Cardiff)
Written and performed by Carys Eleri
Directed by Mared Swain, music produced by Branwen Munn and co-produced by Carys Eleri and Wales Millennium Centre

It’s the next of our Guerrilla Radio plays and here’s the brief. Discover how love works, why it makes us do crazy things and why hugging is the answer. If that isn’t a mammoth task then I don’t know what is. Carys Eleri tackles this seemingly insurmountable conundrum with humour, charm and a good heart.

If I hadn’t been laughing so much I might have learnt something.

Recorded live and up close in The Red Lecture Theatre on the last Saturday of the Festival.

If you want to hear some more of our Guerrilla Radio Plays just go to our Voices In Your Head page and kur-lick the link.
