In The Dark is a collaborative project between a new generation of radio producers and radio enthusiasts. Their aim is to create a mini-revolution in the way people think about spoken-word radio by lifting it out of its traditional settings and celebrating it in new and exciting ways. Over the last five years, they have commissioned new works from producers around the world and staged live listening events at festivals, theatres, cinemas and museums. For this special Manchester Literature Festival event, they will be presenting an audio exploration of The Written Word. You'll hear about everything from the dangerous election days of Edgar Allen Poe to books with hidden chapters and some very unusual ways of getting rid of unwanted volumes. Join In The Dark for an enlightening evening of radio at its most vibrant and unexpected.
