In a 1950s radio station, somewhere in Latin America, Pedro Camacho writes and directs a series of novelas – radio soap operas – that capture the mood of the times as well as Camacho’s own fascination with humanity.

Loosely based on the Mario Llosa novel Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, the piece explores the comedy and tragedy of Camacho and his regular cast of actors, as the stories gradually begin to reflect their own relationships in ways that are both surprising and life-affirming.

Performed live at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, January 17th 2016 by students from the University of Lincoln’s School of Fine and Performing Arts.

You may want to be aware that some of the themes in this radio play are of a mildly adult nature, although there is no bad or foul language.
