A radio play scripted through Twitter

The Whale in the Room is a radio play for Resonance FM, with dialogue entirely sourced through Twitter. Six writers will tweet for six characters over a period of two weeks, and then the source material will be edited into (I hope) a coherent and entertaining narrative. Actors will perform the play for broadcast in 2009.

The project's original announcement is at  Please note that the deadline for applying to participate as a writer has passed.

175 people expressed an interest in helping to write the play. These volunteers followed @RFMplay for (at least) two weeks in April 2009, during which time I followed them, trying to find five writers to join myself in the scriptwriting task.

  1. Don't envy you that task - a difficult choice to pick five from that pool of creative talent. Good luck.
