Written on the Waves

Part of Streamdoor: theatre you can watch from home


45North and Ellie Keel Productions today announce their collaboration on a brand-new audio project – Written on the Waves, showcasing the best in new writing, directing, acting and sound design, and engaging with over 60 freelance creatives and including co-productions with Atticist, HOTTER Project, and The North Wall.

The first season of Written on the Waves comprises 9 world premières including new pieces from Luke Barnes, Tife Kusoro, Rafaella Marcus, Mary Higgins and Ell Potter, Margaret Perry, Lettie Precious, and Amanda Wilkin. The first in the series are currently live, and can be accessed via www.forty-fivenorth.com/writtenonthewaves, with the full season to be released across the remainder of 2020.

Listeners are invited to lose themselves in the intimacy of these audio worlds, in these nine thrilling, newly commissioned stories which will spark listeners’ imaginative worlds, and enable audiences to connect with each other while we are forced to remain apart.

Embracing the opportunities lockdown has presented with enhanced technology and communication, the first season will also include a special international commission - encouraging a more global way of working through finding new ways of collaborating transatlantically. This project and a final commission to complete the first season will be announced shortly.

Critic reviews

Deep and dark

The Stage (On 'The You Play')

Rafaella Marcus’ 'The You Play' is less like listening to a play than it is like falling inside one.

Lyn Gardner for Stagedoor

There is a sweet, observant care in Rafaella Marcus’s writing
