Matthew Fisher's Abandoned Makes Transition from Stage Production to Audio Drama
A play that premiered in South Wales during 2018 has now made the transition to a serialised audio play.
Matthew Fisher’s play, Abandoned, was originally staged by Dramatic Moose Productions in Cardiff during early 2018. The play, which was selected as one of Entertainment South Wales Top Five Live Entertainment Shows of 2018, has now made its transition to an audio drama produced by Bamalam Productions.
Co-Artistic Directors and trained actors, James Steventon and Lauren Sturgess along with the Bamalam team have expanded and developed a wide range of audio work since Bamalam were founded in January 2018.
As Bamalam has an open submission policy for scripts and welcome all submissions, Matthew Fisher’s Abandoned seemed a natural choice to add to Bamalam’s existing programming, as James explains.
“When we first read Abandoned it was an easy decision to select it for our line-up. It has a clear and well-developed premise, with an exciting world to tap into. As well as a cast of characters we could really explore and pull apart, especially with the talents of our amazing cast of actors.”.
“Due to the length of the piece, we decided to work with Matthew to split it across 4 Episodes that will be released a week apart from each other and it has really worked. This was a new style of release for our latest Season (7) of work. Episode 1 & 2 are now live. Episode 3 & 4 will be released on 25th July and 1st August respectively. “
Abandoned follows a group of survivors who have banded together after a terrorist invasion. Simmering with power plays, new friendships are forged and old secrets surface when two new members join a group, despite the ever-present threat of being caught by those they oppose
Writer, Matthew Fisher explained to Entertainment South Wales in January 2018,
“Abandoned is set in a country invaded by terrorists, we find out what happened to people’s friends and family. On top of that, we find out how the group copes with so many different types of personalities and egos.
Listeners to Spotify and ITunes can hear Abandoned and future podcasts of high-quality programming by subscribing to Bamalam Productions.
