Decent Interval, A

Synopsis
Radio drama in four episodes. Charles Paris in Jeremy Front’s adaptation of Simon Brett’s 2013 novel. Paris returns to the stage as the Ghost in Hamlet, but rehearsals are fraught as both Ophelia and Hamlet are being played by reality tv stars - and soon it’s Shakespeare’s words that are being murdered. As the body count rises, so do Charles’ suspicions.
