Drama at Radio Verulam thanks to Company of Ten

Abbey Theatre-based Company of Ten has joined forces with St Albans’ own Radio Verulam to produce a number of radio plays to be broadcast on Sunday evenings over the next couple of months.

The company recorded and aired its first play, an adaptation of “The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Mark Waghorn, from Radio Verulam’s newly refurbished studios last autumn, and has just finished recording a complete set of plays which have all been written by members of the established CoT Writer’s Group.


Join Dereck, Ken and Tommy this Saturday for another programme full of cracking oldies on Radio Verulam 92.6FM between 9am and midday. We start with the charts from October 1963 between 9 and 9-45 – at 9-45 Ian will give us the latest FA Cup news regarding St Albans City FC. Before the 10 o’clock news we Value A Disc and Ken will start off with his nostalgia, including another John Lennon track and one of those 1960’s girls. At 10-15 Dereck will be having a chat with Britain’s oldest student, 80 year old Hilary Forde.
