LBC Internet Play of the Month

Shiver Breathing

by James Payne


The Play:

Shiver Breathing was one of the winners of the Woolwich Young Radio Playwrights' Competition in 1994. It was adapted for the stage and played to a full house at the Cottesloe Theatre at the Royal National, South Bank, London, as well as being broadcast on LBC radio. James was 22 when he wrote Shiver Breathing, and had already enjoyed success by winning the London Radio Playwrights' Festival in 1993 with Bliss and Tumble, which was co-written with Chris Fitch.
