Fugue State

Winner of ‘Best Use Of Sound’ & the Tinniswood Award for ‘Best Radio Drama Script’ at the Audio Drama Awards 2016

In the heart of the English countryside in a specialist residential hospital, a man – a government agent – is in a fugue state. We learn the fugue state is the result of something strange and potentially harmful that has taken place in a remote village. Needing to act before the situation escalates and believing the patient can still hear, Doctor Fallon uses sound recordings to recreate events leading up to the point of shut-down, to prompt the patient’s brain into remembering what has happened.
