Night of the Living Flatpacks
A bold new drama series written by five emerging Deaf and disabled writers, about one chaotic night in a furniture store.
5x 15mins, by Naked Productions, first aired November 2021
A chance meeting between Stella, Ali and Erica at Sharewoods furniture store leads to a dramatic overnight lock-in, an over protective fiancé, a broken-down wheelchair, and an accident that results in a deadly fire.
The series is written by Shahid Iqbal Khan, Michael Southan, Kathryn Golding, Anita Karla Kelly and Leanne Allen – all exciting new Deaf and disabled writers. They first worked together on Connections, a Naked/Graeae radio production funded by the Audio Content Fund in 2020.
Night of the Living Flatpacks stars Amy Conachan (Hollyoaks), Paaislie Reid, Kirsty Johnson, Tachia Newall and Jonathan Keeble.
Three disabled directors – all new to audio drama – worked with Polly Thomas on the series – Nickie Wildin, Cheryl Martin and Hannah Quigley.
Music is by disabled composer Oliver Vibrans, and Sound Design is by Alisdair McGregor
