dc.description.abstract This thesis is a play, set in a radio drama studio, which explores the importance of telling stories, for both the people who tell them and those that listen. The first act is set in 1944, as radio drama is about to enter a “golden age” of production; a company of artists are caught up in the excitement in the creation of a national culture through this new medium. The second act takes place in 2012, as radio drama is being axed by the National Broadcaster, and the company of artists is about to become obsolete. The play requires six actors. The parts they play in the second act are the modern equivalent of those they play in the first, echoing and reflecting on the changes in time. Sound plays an important part of Making Waves, with live sound effects underscoring the drama. en_US
