Boundless Theatre Search

Radio Elusia

Spring 2020
Written by Nina Segal
Directed by Rob Drummer


Our time will come and all the people will come out into the streets with their fists clenched, their arms and voices raised. You have to be listening. And you have to be ready.

From the seventeenth floor, Raphael watches the city for signs of a revolution, his voice echoing through a homemade radio transmitter to the streets below.  He watches.  He waits.  One day, he disappears.  Now, years later, it’s down to Lia and Suz to continue where he left off.  But will a revolution ever come if we just wait for it?  Set in the sprawling fictional city of Elusia, Radio Elusia is a new weekly podcast from Boundless Theatre, about transmission and revolution.

These are the messages. This is the meaning. Be ready. Be listening. And do not be afraid.

Launching on all major podcast platforms spring 2020.

Radio Elusia by Nina Segal commissioned and developed as part of Extended Universe by Boundless Theatre in partnership with Teater Grob, Entropia and Sala Beckett co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
