We would like to say a big thank you to the BBC Audio Drama Awards for including Blis-ta in their shortlist for Best Podcast or Online Audio Drama.
Blis-ta is a visceral, bold and startling audio drama about hidden homelessness and the lengths women go to for survival. A wild celebration of resilience, it will spin you through a mesh of joy, chaos and beauty. The play was written by the late Sonya Hale, who was a Clean Break Member and an incredible writer, and produced by Mimi Findlay.
'We are so delighted to have been shortlisted. I have been in touch with Sonya's family and they share our pride to be included with such great nominees. We made Blis-ta in the height of lockdown and when Sonya was very near the end of her life. It feels incredibly hopeful that it has been so well received and that we can continue to celebrate Sonya.'
- Róisín McBrinn, Director of Blis-ta and Clean Break's Joint Artistic Director.
