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.

Andrew Gower stars in the radio play Speak, an episode of BBC4 Radio’s series Dangerous Visions, which will be broadcast on Monday 18 June 2018.
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).
