This week we feature the second installment of John Dryden’s radio drama adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” produced for BBC Radio 4.
In a world not so far in the future, the land of “Gilead” is ruled by the law of the Good Book and women’s rights are dramatically scaled back. One woman is torn from family and re-educated to be a Handmaid… a reproductive surrogate for a married couple. Forced into this strange and frightening new life, the Handmaid arrives this week on her assignment, an awkward new role in the household. A haunting and mature themed drama with incredible power.
First up, Dialed In part 6, with “Customer Relations” by Matthew Boudreau.
Also featuring Episode 7 Part 3 of The Cleansed, wherein John Prophet tells his story about how “Corinth” was built from the ashes of New York City… and then summarily destroyed.
