Newspaper to offer radio drama

The Independent newspaper is to premier a new radio drama on its website as part of a new deal with production company Made in Manchester.

The indie is attempting to find new avenues to reach their audience, in addition to their regular work for the BBC.

In the new drama, History Boys and Desperate Romantics star Samuel Barnett plays SecondWorld War Enigma code breaker Alan Turing in Turing’s Test, a fictionaltake on what might have been going through Turing’s mind in his dyingmoments after he’d eaten the apple laced with cyanide in 1954.

Ashley Byrne, Creative Director of Made in Manchester which produced the drama says: “We’re delighted that The Independent has chosen to premiere this drama on their website.

"We hope Turing’s Test will be just the start as we find freshways of introducing short form radio drama and comedy to new audiences."
