At 9.30pm tonight (February 17th), you can hear ‘Glory, Glory An Edinburgh Story’, the last in our series of five new contemporary audio dramas collectively titled
THE WAVES.



GLORY, GLORY AN EDINBURGH STORY by Kamala Santos (Edinburgh) locates its action at a Hibs football match, where Eric, an elderly Honduran Scottish former lumberjack, spots his estranged granddaughter Jade taking part in racist behaviour towards black players. His ensuing intervention opens up a journey of discovery about Jade’s roots, telling a little-known story about a significant Caribbean presence in the Scotland Highlands during World War Two.

Leading theatre company Tamasha, celebrated for telling stories from the global majority, has joined forces with acclaimed audio drama production company Holy Mountain to present THE WAVES. A series of five explosive 25-minute audio dramas, THE WAVES explores our age of so-called ‘culture war’ through the lens of the legacy of the British empire.

Reflective of contemporary life, some of the productions feature adult themes and language, tailored to an adult audience.

THE WAVES is made possible by the support of The Audio Content Fund; financed by the UK Government to fund independent producers making high quality, public service content for UK commercial and community radio, The Audio Content Fund has so far supported 128 projects distributing over £2.6m in the sector.
