A Blast from the Past – David Tennant has always appeared in audio plays through out his career but a number of them have been lost to the history. However, thanks to power of the internet and The internet Archive two of these lost plays have been recovered.
First is Sunburst Finish by Andrea Gibb with Paddy Cunneen. David Tennant plays Davey, a student in his final year at university. He has everything going for him. He’s bright, talented and loved by all but he doesn’t want to live.
The second is Tuesdays & Sundays by Daniel Arnold and Medina Hahn. Tuesday & Sundays is about a chance meeting between William, an eighteen year old farm boy Mary, a sixteen year old farm girl living in 19th-century rural Canada meet on New Year’s Eve. Patti Browning, a former writer of the DT Forum interviewed Daniel Arnold about his work on the play a few years ago and you can now listen to the play.
Thanks to Patti Browning for finding these gifts.
By Andrea Gibb with Paddy Cunneen
Davey is in his final year of a music degree at university. He has everything going for him: he’s bright, attractive, musically gifted, adored by friends and family, and his professor has him down for a first. There’s just one problem – Davey doesn’t want to live.
