Emma Horwill

Springline Radio Players
is pleased to announce a new play
by Alan Kilpatrick, entitled "Shade", featuring the most
notorious killers in Scotland's history, Burke and Hare.
They were arrested in 1829 for the murder of sixteen people
and during the trial, William Hare, after been given a
promise of immunity, testified against his former
"business" partner, James Burke. Amid a great public outcry,
Hare escaped the gallows, was released from custody and
then disappeared into the mists of history. But what
happened to William Hare? Listen to find out his dark secret.
Please visit our podcast site at:
https://springlineamdram.podbean.com to listen, download and
share with friends, family and anyone you happen to meet in
the pub or supermarket.
Upcoming audio plays that are currently in pre and post
production are "Great Expectations", an adaption of the
famous Charles Dickens story, "Vinegar Hill",  "Felicity's Festive
Frolics", by Karen McKivitt and a sequel to the very popular
"The Lost Lamp of Lorrata" comedy released in July this year,
and "Hard Time" by Chris McKerracher, an all-female play
about some highly respectable ladies having to spend a night
in police custody.
If you would like to get involved at the director, technical,
writer or cast level then please contact David Hunter at
