Listen to an excerpt from Lou Beckett's audio play " Bletchley Girls". Bletchley was the headquarters of the code-breakers unit trying to break the secret codes used by the enemy during WWII.
Based on a true story of two young women and their remarkable effort to crack some of the enemy’s toughest codes, Bletchley Girls follows an unlikely friendship between Mavis Lever and Margaret Rock. Pressure increases to decipher intercepts which will impact the course of the war, but it’s not all night shifts and Enigma machines; there are dances, pranks and even a little romance.
Lou Beckett wrote for the stage until Covid lockdowns inspired the director of her play, Bletchley Girls, to turn it into a radio play and podcast. Since then, the allure of having a legacy for one’s work, as well as the continuing presence of Covid, has meant her subsequent plays have been created for radio/podcast.
Lou’s other works include Rotten Luck, The Parrot, the Poet, and the Philanderer, and Forbidden Music.
We Can’t Be, a new audio play, tells the story of two young women who decide their town needs a statue of a woman.
