Springline Radio Players
are pleased to add another audio play to our
growing series
"Box and Cox" is a one act farce by
John Maddison Morton and adapted for audio by
Neville Teller. It is based on a French vaudeville,
"Frisette", which was produced in Paris in 1846.
The original play was used by Sir Arthur Sullivan
for his comic opera, which he renamed "Cox and Box".
Our adaptation was first broadcast across the USA
in October 2015 in a production by
Shoestring Radio Theatre, San Francisco.
Mr Teller, who is a BBC Radio 4 producer and
playwright, has given us approval to broadcast his
play in the UK and as such, this is its UK premier.
If you would like to get involved, as a cast member,
director, writer or technical/editing support then
please let us know at SpringlineRadio@gmail.com
