Never having made a radio play before, we created Radio Zummerzet over lockdown.
Radio Zummerzet pays homage to the way rural communities have responded to the Covid-19 crisis. Devised by the cast it features eclectic radio personalities and bombastic local news stories, exploring a picture of the country through local voices and rural responses to the Covid-19 crisis.
Wassail’s creative process always involves welcoming learning as part of the creative process. And we’ve learned loads making Radio Zummerzet. We’re proud to present three initial episodes which will be the forerunner for a live, rural touring theatre production.
