OK Computer play

OK Computer - a Radio Four Friday play.

By Joel Horwood, Chris Perkins, Al Smith and Chris Thorpe.

A celebration of Radiohead's seminal 1997 album OK Computer which draws on themes from each of its 12 tracks.

A man wakes up in a hospital in Berlin. He has no memory of who he is, or where he comes from. Once the details of his life are recovered, he is repatriated to Britain and into his former life. But he is haunted by the suspicion that this is not his real life at all.

Paul ...... Tom Brooke
Sarah ...... Liz White
Helen ...... Federay Holmes
Owen ...... Pieter Lawman
Boss ...... Chris Thorpe

Producer Lu Kemp.

Cloud reckons its quite good...

Lisa - you asked whether I enjoyed it and I posted a comment on EKN but I'm not sure if you're set up to receive alters for EKN comments. Here's what i said:

It was, wasn't it? "Enigmatic" is the word that comes to mind. All rather Chuang-Tsu-and-the-Butterfly. I wondered at first if I'd be missing out by only having heard the album once, about 10 years ago. Maybe some things would be less enigmatic, like "ladybird" and all the North Norfolk stuff? Must get hold of a copy and listen again.
