FLIRT FM 101.3, Galway’s student and alternative station will premiere the radio drama Life Gets Tasteless on Wednesday November 20 from 9pm to 10pm.
Maureen Nestor has a near death experience while having a gastric band operation. During this experience, she looks back at her life and her relationship with food and her body. With the help of her spirit guide, A, she realises how much of her time she has spent eating, dieting, and worrying about her weight.
Life Gets Tasteless is the debut play by Marisa O’Mahony, who also directs this performance. It is funded by the BAI’s Sound & Vision scheme. It was performed as a stage play as part of the Cork Arts Theatre’s Lunchtime Season in 2012. After its initial run of one week, it was brought back by popular demand for a second run. Marisa is currently part of the storyline writing team on TG4’s Ros na Rún and is developing other writing projects.
Life Gets Tasteless was produced, recorded, and edited by radio producer Alan Meaney. Alan is the production manager of Flirt FM and has extensive experience in producing radio plays. See www.flirtfm.ie
