Review of Flashforward

This type of short, captivating storytelling succeeds well in audio format. The scene is quickly set, the story begins, and the audience is immersed in Sandra's strange journey into what she expects to be her past. Especially in this age of short attention spans, I think this is probably the best form to use when introducing people to radio drama for the 1st time.

Review of Flashforward

Very engaging from the start, Flashforward took a darker tone than expected - it was like a mini Twilight Zone, but without a neat tie up at the ending. I liked the ambiguity and the overall surreal quaility it had.

Review of Flashforward

Well, listeners could be intrigued by this little story - and they well might want to know more - but I think it would be more because they didn't quite get it the first time.

How did these people get there? Memory travel, time travel, what? Where is that music is coming from? The actor as the doctor is a bit voiceover-ish which is reinforced by his being the one that gives the title.

A bit more internal, and subtle in the acting, less stage-y - and short pieces like this are well worth working on, though. I agree with Hans, in terms of length, less can be more. The writing has plenty of potential.
