Excerpt from The Sea Gate, written by Jane Johnson
Accent - British RP
Rebecca is in a fragile state having had a double mastectomy some time before and just having received news about a possible recurrence of the cancer. She is tentative and fearful and lacks self-confidence. (Eddy, her boyfriend, is a selfish lout and is emotionally abusive which she doesn’t realize until later in the story). Although she becomes much more confident as the book progresses, in the beginning she is still grieving the loss of her mother and is somewhat depressed.
VO Character - 'Lauren McNair'
Excerpt from stage play 'Radio Suspense Theatre', adapted for radio
Lauren McNair sings 'As Time Goes By' - a ditzy but sweet gal (think Judy Holliday meets Edith Bunker) who is the in-house chanteuse, performing songs in between the commercials and mystery theatre spots on the small local radio station.
VO Character - 'Dorothy Doyle'
Excerpt from the stage play 'Radio Suspense Theatre', adapted for radio
Dorothy Doyle sings 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' - a guest star on the radio show, she's an aging chanteuse past her prime, and possibly only a one-hit wonder. She is faded, jaded and quite full of her previous celebrity (think Mae West meets Sunset Boulevard's Norma Desmond).
