According to most philosophers, God in making the world enslaved it.

According to Christianity, in making it, He set it free. God had written, not so much a poem,

but rather a play; a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it.

Orthodoxy – GK Chesterton, 1874-1936

After morning worship on the Sunday, we're hoping to have lunch somewhere before going our separate ways. Do join us if you possibly can. It's going to be a good weekend.

More congratulations to Hannah Morley, winner of the Radius Playwriting Competition 2018, for being one of the six winners of the Channel 4 Playwrights’ Scheme. Hannah will spend a year at the Finborough Theatre as Playwright in Residence and we look forward to seeing more of her work.

Once again we're holding our annual General Meeting and Workshop in the beautiful church complex of St Mark's Sheffield. The church was destroyed in the Blitz and rebuilt by the architect George Pace, with a John Piper window. The meeting at 11 am will be the first one chaired by our President, Bishop Stephen Platten, and we're looking forward to his presidential address. A hot lunch will be served to people who have pre-booked, or you can bring sandwiches.

A selection of Radius YouTube videos is now available on the Radius Videos page, including three playwriting How-To videos. If you like the videos,

please spread the word on social media. You can also subscribe to the Radius channel to be notified by email when a new video is posted.

More congratulations

Listen again here to the Archers’ Canterbury Tales, written by Radius Chair Nick Warburton, or download the podcast from the Radio 4 website. Fans of Nick’s work can also read about his Radius scripts and download free previews here.

From 2-4 pm our Vice-President Peter Moreton will lead a workshop exploring the dramatic possibilities of this exciting venue. Peter is the founder and artistic director of Applecart Arts. Guests and non-members are welcome to join us for the workshop, but please register your interest through info@radius.org.uk.


We time the meeting so that people can come for the day, but if you'd like to make it a weekend break we're planning to go to the Crucible Studio Theatre on Saturday evening
