The immersive audio drama Ballad Of The Burning Boy (broadcast on Radio 3 last week) follows Miriam as she walks the streets of Preston, desperate to find her son George who has got mixed up with an extreme eco movement, the Pre-Arkwrights. Written by Lavinia Murray and starring Suranne Jones and Lemn Sissay, it’s a highly charged examination of what happens when the young decide to put themselves in the way of harm in order to protect the planet.
This Saturday evening, 8th September, sees its live launch – you can become part of the action and walk the route (in Preston) with the invisible film on your headphones. There will be surprises. It’s free – more detail here – www.balladburningboy.com.
