On Monday 19th December we recorded a comedy by new writer Laura Harvey, starring Alison Steadman and Geoffrey Whitehead and a host of radio drama royalty. It was directed by Cherry Cookson and recorded in front of a packed audience at The Lion & Unicorn Theatre. Check out these photos of the technical and dress rehearsals by the brilliant Mike Garnell.
