*** Gareth Elis won the Marc Beeby award for best debut performance in Tremolo and the play itself was shortlisted for best original single drama in the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2023!***
In March 2022, my audio drama Tremolo was released, an Illumine Theatre production in partnership with Wales Gene Park and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, supported by the Genetics Society. It tells the story of Harri - an 18 year old with his whole life ahead of him, only to discover his mother has been diagnosed with early onset familial Alzheimer's and that both he and his sister Gwenllian each have a 50 per cent chance of inheriting the disease.
Available in English and Welsh, Tremolo is available via platforms including Spotify, iTunes and AM or by clicking here.
