Profile:
Gregory Whitehead is the writer, director and producer of more than one hundred radio plays, essays and acoustic adventures for the BBC, Radio France, Australia’s ABC, NPR and other broadcasters.

His plays have won numerous major awards, including a Prix Italia for Pressures of the Unspeakable, a Prix Futura for Shake, Rattle, Roll and a Sony Gold Academy Award for The Loneliest Road.
