BBC Radio 3: Drama on 3
Broadcast: Sunday 14th September 2008 @ 8:00 p.m.
Ronald Frame's new play for BBC Radio 3 is a story of love and deception set during the Cold War in the late Sixties and early Seventies. Throughout this period, "Romeo spies" were operating, targeting bright and susceptible young women and recruiting them as unwitting spies.
"Blue Wonder" follows the story of Alice Reeves, a young secretary from London, as she becomes romantically involved with Otto Hanhart – an East German spy. Having carefully built up her trust, Otto convinces her to take some papers from the office she's working in. As the espionage continues, so, too, does the love affair between them, but the encounter leads to unexpected consequences for both parties, changing their lives for ever.
With Clare Corbett [Alice Reeves], Jamie Glover [Otto Hanhart], Nick Sayce [Ben Coombes], Gunnar Cauthery [Henry Soper], Stephen Critchlow [Mr. Hodges], Cressida Trew [Tricia], Dan Starkey [Doctor], and Liza Sadovy [Mrs. Crosby].
All other parts were played by members of the cast.
Directed by David Ian Neville.
