Summary

Marcia Warren and Stella Gonet star in J. B. Priestley’s classic family drama about the nature of time. Time and the Conways follows the fortunes of one family over a period of years, and offers a moving perspective on the abstract nature of the past, present and future. 

It is 1919, the War is over and the Conway family are celebrating their daughter Kay’s 21st birthday. But her sudden premonition of their lives in 1937 casts a shadow over their dreams and expectations. 

This BBC Radio production features a distinguished cast, including Marcia Warren, Stella Gonet, Belinda Sinclair, Amanda Redman and Toby Stephens. 

The Classic Radio Theatre range presents notable radio productions of much-loved plays by some of the most renowned playwrights and starring some of our finest actors.

Hard to revisit

Remembered this from many moons ago. Found this hard to really get into second time round. Found the characters hard to take seriously with their 1930s voices which seemed to somehow get in the way of the storyline. Perhaps it's just me.
