Whistle Once More for Jinny
A bold new beginning for radio drama in the Isle of Man. From the pen of Alex Duncan, author of ‘Fynoderee’ and ‘The Versatiles’, comes ‘Whistle Once More for Jinny!’ a classic chiller to terrify and delight you as the dark nights draw in. It is a love letter to the joyous melodrama of Hammer Horror, the irreverence of Ealing Comedy and the ghost stories of M R James and Nigel Neale. More than this, it is a love letter to our island, its people, its music and its stories. Bringing together many of the island's most skilled performers; Alex Duncan, Lisa Kreisky, David Dawson and Caroline Devlin lead this full cast production. All of this is embellished with a hauntingly lyrical soundtrack by Ruth Keggin-Gell, one of the island's most accomplished traditional musicians. Produced for Manx Radio by Christy DeHaven.
