Radio 3 attracts top writers

New plays by critically acclaimed writers Charlotte Jones, Mike Bartlett, Simon Stephens and Gary Mitchell are part of a new season of drama on BBC Radio 3.

Dramas inspired by coincidences, the terrorist attacks on London and the long-lasting love affair between a poet and an artist form part of the New Year line up on Drama On 3.

Charlotte Jones's In The Absence Of Geoff, is a new play commissioned by Radio 3, and tells the tale of Geoff played by West End theatre star Adam Godley.

Mike Bartlett's The Steps is a new play specially written for Radio 3 and follows an elderly lady, Rosie, who lives in an old people's home.

And there is provocative writing from playwright Simon Stephens with a radio transfer of his new play Pornography, which made its UK debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 2008.
