Speak: Andrew Gower on BBC Radio 4

In case you missed it the first time around, here’s another chance to listen to Philip Palmer’s audio drama Speak starring Andrew Gower and Pippa Haywood.

Lucian [Andrew Gower] has a vocabulary that is limited to a core 1500 words, but Clara [Pippa Haywood] wants to teach him those that are forbidden. A dystopian love story about the power of words, set in a near future where the language spoken is Globish – a reduced version of English. […] A gripping two-hander about the power of words; how words – and even more, the absence of words – can control, confine, leach emotion and trap minds.

Speak

A dystopian love story about the power of language, written by Philip Palmer. Set in a near future where the language spoken is Globish – a version of English, which has been reduced to just 1500 core words (and a real language developed in 2004 as an international means of communication).
