Big cheers to our friends with the Wireless Theatre Company who celebrated five years of producing compelling, alternative (to the BBC at least) contemporary radio drama programming direct to the web, with some stage shows thrown in for good measure.
It sounds like the kicked off the milestone in style, with a mix and mingle at a London pub (where else!):
Online radio drama production company celebrated 5 years of success with a large party last Saturday at The Old Explorer pub in Central London. The crowd listened to a short montage of the best of Wireless Theatre’s past five years and mingled into the night – ending up at The Phoenix Arts Bar after hours.
The Wireless Theatre Company is an online audio theatre company launched five years ago in 2007 by actress Mariele Runacre Temple. The company produces one original radio play a month working with a vast number of actors and writers, including some famous voices such as Nicholas Parsons, Julian Glover, Prunella Scales, Timothy West, Abi Titmuss, Lionel Blair, Christopher Timothy, Richard O’Brien and Ray Galton.
In 2011 the company won Best Online Producer and Best Multi Platform Creator at the Radio Academy Awards.
