This month’s guest is Andrew Wallace, author of the Diamond Roads series of novels, which follow the challenges facing Charity Freestone and her family in 24th Century Diamond City.
Following stage productions of his plays ‘Byron’ and ‘The Scissors Angel’ Andrew’s Radio 4 play, ‘Burn Your Phone’ was nominated for a Writer’s Guild Award and turned into a film on BBC2 starring and directed by Alan Cumming. He followed commissions for the feature-length script of acclaimed short ‘The Cutter’ and an adaptation of the novel ‘As Good As It Gets’ with the BBC7 show ‘Wonderworld’ and wrote regularly for Radio 4’s flagship comedy ‘Look Away Now’. He has produced three Edinburgh shows including ‘The Free Three’ and ‘Seething Is Believing’ and created the ‘Vengeance’ and ‘Bloody Mary’ shows for the London Dungeon.
