Debbie is 33, lives at home with her mum and broadcasts Zonk FM from her bedroom. On the surface it sounds like any other radio station. But Debbie is making contact with others like her.

This roller coaster of a show shines a (disco) light on mental health and explore other people’s reality with fast-paced physical humour and acute tenderness.

Zonk FM is a poignant new comedy, debuting writer Angus Brown and director Tom Adams, and featuring Sally Crooks, Keri Jessiman, Steve Jacobs and Jake Tindle.

Be part of Miracle Theatre’s future

Miracle Grow is a new, un-funded, initiative from Cornwall's Miracle Theatre that will create opportunities for the next generation of writers and directors. It will be a place for writers and directors to gain priceless experience to lead them onto the next stages of their careers – as well as creating exciting and unexpected shows for audiences across the South West and beyond.

‘Zonk FM’ will be the first Miracle Grow project. This sci-fi comedy with a serious streak will be written and directed by regular Miracle performers Angus Brown and Tom Adams, who will both be taking on these roles for the first time.

ABOUT THE WRITER, ANGUS BROWN: Angus has performed in several Miracle productions including the title roles Hamlet & Quasimodo and most recently Vladimir in Waiting for Godot. ZONK FM, is his first play.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR, TOM ADAMS: Tom first worked with Miracle in 2002 as a dresser on Twelfth Night. He then went on to perform in five productions including The Case of The Frightened Lady and he was the musical director and composer for both Frankenstein! and The Magnificent Three. ZONK FM is his directing debut. www.tom-adams.co.uk

Why do we need you to help fund this?

The team is going into rehearsals in March with a few quid we have managed to scrape together. But, with your help, we can get this project off to an even better start! You contributions will be added to the production budget and allow Tom the chance to bring in expertise in lighting and sound design, be able to include more music in the show and provide a bit more marketing spend to make sure this show gets the audience we know it will deserve.
