Fringe Festival

Owing to the Failure Of

An audio experiment for podcast lovers. When a radio producer finds 100-year-old Marconi Code books in a junk shop, she starts to read the code lists obsessively and twist them into her own life story. This theatre for the ears mimics a live podcast format to chart a crumbling relationship from its origins, via a history of sound, telegraphy and communication to a flight into madness. Mixing live reading and recorded quadrophonic sound, a blend of story, found text, biographies and voices. Sound design by Brendan Rehill and Brendan Jenkinson.
