Captain Radio™ hosts once more for vacationing Fred Greehalgh as we continue our series New Year, New Audio, which, yeah, kind of dares you to step outside your past listening routine, to try something different for you. When you come across something new for you that you really like, share with others about it, so they can broaden their horizons as well.
Last week we enjoyed satirical short-shorts from the new “Rythmical Ravings and Rants”, or RRRants, consortium of modern UK troubadors.
This week we flip the theater mask to feature the first of a two-part docu-drama, There Is A Field, adapted by Marie Tueje from Jen Marlowe’s play of the same name.
This poignant audio drama explores the life of youthful Aseel Aslih of Arrabeh, Israel. Aseel strove to find a healthy personal identity and peaceful purpose in life while coping with the stark political realities still faced by Palestinian citizens of Israel.
We are very pleased to have as our interview guests for this episode Jen Marlowe of Donkey Saddle Projects, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, human rights advocate, author and playwright for There Is A Field as well as Aseel Aslih’s younger sister, Siwar Aslih, calling in all the way from Haifa, Israel.
[RATED AD-PG-13 for some strong language]
