“Hello Luton, it’s midnight and you’re listening to the all-nighter with Danny and Alex!”

Andy Harker’s debut comedic drama centres around two radio DJ’s bursting with enthusiasm on air, but bursting with troubles off it. They’re both growing tired of playing the same old songs every night, plus there’s a new awkwardness that pervades the atmosphere between them. It’s three weeks since they seemingly made a drunken error, and tonight things will get no better. Their producer is running around like crazy, Danny’s in a bad mood, and an outrageous guest is about to push him to the edge…

Welwyn Drama Festival 2012

Founded in 1929 and as iconic as Welwyn Garden City itself, the Welwyn Drama Festival brings the best of amateur dramatics from Hertfordshire and further afield to compete in a series of one act plays. The experienced play selection team has carefully planned a week packed with everything from comedy and horror to heart-rending stories. Every evening two or more plays will thrill, excite and potentially move you to tears!

This year's Festival Programme runs from Monday 11th to Saturday 18th June and includes no fewer than eight new plays.

True FM

Written by Woodhouse member Andy Harker, TrueFM was first performed at the Welsh Church, Leytonstone, in March 2012, and again at the Waltham Forest Festival of Theatre later that month. Details of those performances, including a large selection of photographs, can be found here.
