Hannah Vincent’s play wins BBC Audio Award

Hannah Vincent’s radio play Come to Grief has won an award for Best Drama in the Adaptation category in the 2015 BBC Audio Awards, announced on 1st February.

The judging panel said that the script, adapted from Hannah’s own stage play,  ‘brilliantly exploits radio’s unique ability to voice both the conscious and the unconscious mind. It is a play that haunts you with images that can only be realised by the listeners’ own imagination.’

The following synopsis of the play can be found on the BBC website:

Sylvia (Claire Rushbrook) is in hospital suffering from memory loss. She cannot remember anything about her life. The treatment she is undergoing is radical – she is suspended above the floor, hanging by her neck. Medical staff assure her that this way ‘everything will fall into place’.

As she hangs, Sylvia is visited by a series of figures, including her husband (Philip Jackson), her daughter (Emerald O’Hanrahan) and a man (Carl Prekopp), calling himself her friend, whom she cannot recognize.

But are these people real or phantoms? It soon becomes apparent that part of the space of the play is Sylvia’s unconscious, the land of her memory. As she comes to understand this, she slowly starts to remember the appalling events that have occurred….

Hannah teaches both A215 and A363 for the OU.

    This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the Internet on the 20TH OF April 2017, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Dr,LOVE on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard of anything about magic before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Dr,Love did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me in the same 48 hours just as i read on the Internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don’t know how much to convey my appreciation to you Dr, LOVE you are a God sent to me and my entire family..
