Opportunity to present The Interference by Lynda Radley
28 November 2017
Our friends (and neighbours) Macnaughton Lord are excited to announce that THE INTERFERENCE by Lynda Radley is now available to license by student and young companies in the UK.
In a culture of amplified voices and distorted information where student athletes become celebrities, everyone has incentive to bury truth. When a survivor speaks up, can her truth rise above the noise? A story for a world in the midst of a tectonic cultural shift that shakes the old patriarchal society to its core. Following the recent exposure of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood and the UK theatre industry, THE INTERFERENCE portrays a vital perspective on abuse of power and how attitudes need to change NOW.
If you are part of a youth/student group or school and would be interested in obtaining the performance rights, please see below for more details and how to get in touch.
THE INTERFERENCE received outstanding audience reaction and critical acclaim during its premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016.
Winner of a Scotsman Fringe First Award, 2016
Winner of a Broadway Baby Bobby Award, 2016
Doubling and flexible casting possible
Praise for THE INTERFERENCE
British Theatre Guide ★★★★★
“Lynda Radley's script manages to distill a tragically familiar yet original story”
“a compelling narrative of broken snippets of conversation”
“a story that needs to be told.”
The Scotsman ★★★★
“Radley’s text is formidable, though, both in its powerful narrative structure, and in its ear for the chilling parallels between the brutal, aggressive language of the sports field, and the frightening attitudes to women that often go along with it”
“brisk, gripping, fiercely intelligent”
Edfringe Reviews ★★★★
“serious, impactful drama”
“tight, poised and hard hitting.”
“Radley’s intelligent dialogue shows the striking similarity between the lexicons of sport and rape culture.”
“Radley’s writing exhibits a dark humour”
