At 9.30pm on Thursday (January 27th), you can hear ‘Grosvenor Road’, the second in our series of five new contemporary audio dramas collectively titled THE WAVES.

‘Grosvenor Road’ , written by Corinne Walker, uses split time periods to look at the fate of a former slum building in Bristol which was a focus of Caribbean anti-racist resistance in the 70’s and 80’s. Years later, it has been regenerated into expensive flats attractive to a white London couple, who are being shown around by a young, black estate agent.

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.
