Pinocchio

by Carlo Collodi

From the Translation by Mary Alice Murray

in four parts

Part 1

`This performance is a new adaptation based on the original translation by Mary Alice Murray of the story by Carlo Collodi as first published in English in 1892. The production is in a live 'radio style performance', or Physical Radio as we like to call it.

The actors created all the sound effects from the stage using ... yes you've guessed it, amongst other things ... coconut shells!

Forget the Walt Disney version.

This one is a 'warts and all' version with the dark bits left in and the humour turned up.

The History of

Pinocchio

by Carlo Collodi

Pinocchio first made an appearance in 1883 when he appeared as a serialisation in an Italian magazine. The character was created by Carlo Collodi for a series of allegorical tales warning Italian peasants of the dangers of migrating into the big city.

The stories were eventually brought together as one tale and it was first translated into English ... well actually American ... in the 1890s by Mary Alice Murray, who has no other claim to fame, as far as I can make out.

Since then, the tale of the mischievous wooden puppet who refuses to go to school has been translated into every possible language. It also received the Walt Disney treatment, and now it is the Disney version that everyone knows.

But the original version is a lot darker than the God Father of animation would have us believe.

We will be serialising our version of the original ... it has been cut a lot, but it needed it ... in 4 parts. So watch this sp... I mean listen here!

Don’t stay home to avoid catching corvid-19 ...

... assume you’ve already got it ...

... and stay home so you don’t give it to someone else!
