The Greater Game: Part 1

I’m working on a radio play set during the Great War called the Greater Game.  Written by author Ed Harris, it tells the story of young footballers who fought at Loos in France in 1915.  This a battle largely forgotten today but it saw poison gas used for the first time and nearly resulted in a breakthrough for the British on the western front.  Many young lads were killed in the offensive and the play brings that episode to life.  Here’s some of the cast at read-through.


The production is divided into four parts; dialogue/foley/soundscapes/edit.  We are concentrating on the spoken word first and when complete a rough cut will be assembled, ready for the remaining sounds to be layered in.  Next up are studio sessions which I’ll cover in part two.
