With music from members of the Ferryhill Town Band
Durham Book Festival presents a special live performance of Michael Chaplin’s radio play Lies, Damn Lies and Conversational Implicature at Durham Town Hall. The Ferryhill Philosophers dramas by Michael Chaplin have become a regular feature of the BBC Radio 4 schedules, focusing on the entertaining and thought-provoking collision between moral philosophy and life in the small Durham town of Ferryhill. The plays feature the unlikely partnership of retired pitman Joe Snowball, played by Alun Armstrong, and Durham University philosophy don Lady Hermione Pink, played by Deborah Findlay, as they wrestle with a series of ticklish moral dilemmas.
We’re delighted that original cast members Deborah Findlay and Alun Armstrong will be taking part in this live reading.
In this session Michael Chaplin and director Marilyn Imrie will describe how the plays came about before a live performance with the help music from the Ferryhill Town Band.
‘Brain food for grown-ups. This is simply gold-star radio in every sense – writing, performances and production.’
