Listen to THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY Director Peter Strickland's "The Len Continuum"

"Darling, I'm off to the Lepidoptery lecture." "I think I'll stay home and listen to 'The Len Continuum.'"

Did you enjoy Peter Strickland's The Duke of Burgundy at Vanguard last year? Or maybe his tribute to giallo and sound design, Berberian Sound Studio, which premiered at Vanguard? Do you wish you could enjoy more dramas by Peter Strickland? Well you're in luck--Strickland has a radio drama "The Len Continuum" airing on BBC Radio 4. It features Toby Jones (Berberian Sound Studio) and it sounds plenty promising.

The debut for radio by the critically acclaimed British filmmaker Peter Strickland, writer and director of cult films Berberian Sound Studio and The Duke of Burgundy.

Sometime in the early eighties, struggling actor Len is increasingly overshadowed by his wife Alice's successful career in local radio. As his bitterness grows, he comes by a chance to finally prove himself.

Surreal soundscapes and black humour with Toby Jones and Belinda Stewart-Wilson.

Will there be mole crickets singing? Listen to find out.  You can listen to it on the Radio 4 site for another three weeks.
Hope you enjoy the show, everyone!
