Dusty Won’t Play by Annie Caulfield – a new play for BBC Radio 4

By February 4, 2013 Uncategorized

Charlie Brooks stars as Dusty Springfield in Annie Caulfield’s latest play which premiers on BBC Radio 4, 2:15pm on Tuesday 12th February.

DUSTY WON’T PLAY is a reminder of the tangled paranoia of apartheid and the true story of Dusty Springfield’s refusal to play segregated audiences in South Africa. Shot through with the ozone charge of Dusty’s music, leavened with her earthy humour and straight talking, this play looks at the harrowing days of her short South African tour. Drawing on eye witness accounts, this drama recreates the 1964 South Africa that Dusty challenged – Nelson Mandela had just been jailed for life, liberals were spied on, detained and destroyed.
