Anthony Minghella and Radio Drama

Anthony Minghella’s esteem as a radio playwright largely rests with two plays he wrote which were produced by BBC Radio Drama in 1987 and 1988

Hang Up is a sound version of a stage/dance script which after production for BBC Radio 3 won the Prix Italia’s Best Radio Fiction prize in 1988.

Cigarettes and Chocolate starring Bill Nighy and Juliet Stevenson was awarded a Giles Cooper Radio Drama prize after broadcast on BBC R4 and was published in the volume of award-winning plays for that year by Mehuen.
