Comedy Play Script: 'Lost For Words' by Devon WilliamsonSynopsis

Bob Marley and Robert Schumann... you couldn’t get two musicians more different. But the two collide head-on on the playlist of Classical Music FM, the radio station at the centre of this hilarious and warm-hearted comedy.

Radio Announcer Edwin Miles is conservative, intellectual and dull, so dull in fact that his daily 6-hour long classical music radio show has absolutely no listeners, and, as his Station Manager points out, if any were to die there’d be negative listeners.

It’s definitely not a data entry error, the ratings don’t lie, no one is listening. Determined not to be sent home to head office in Germany, Station Manager, Janet takes drastic action and employs a middle-aged white man masquerading as a Jamaican named Bongo, changing Classical Music FM to Radio Reggae.

Understandably the change and the invasion by a man who is his very antithesis comes as a huge shock to the pompous Edwin who does everything he can to keep the status quo. But with change comes self discovery and friendship and Edwin realises 'Bob' Schumann is not all that different to Bob Marley.
