Student Radio Dramas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

As part of the module Writing for the Theatre and Radio, English and Creative Writing students at Coventry University were asked to adapt their ten-minute plays to eight-minute radio dramas. They had to adjust visual elements into aural ones, which involved considerable rethinking and revision of content. This necessitated the recording of voices, creation of sound effects, addition of music and so forth using audio recording and editing software. Students had also to accompany their radio play with an oral commentary. It was a new learning experience for all concerned, and the dramas have attracted interest from BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Radio. This paper will outline the development of the project.
