On “Radio Theatre” throughout May 2023, Radio Mansfield, presents “Driving Me Crazy” by Benalla writer Simone Curtis.
On a hot summer’s day during the school holidays, Casey’s crazy old grandpa is about to take her for a spin in his classic 1974 Datsun 260C … and he has a few surprises in store!
But you can’t keep an old man down … even when you take away his wheels!
“Driving Me Crazy” is made possible thanks to a grant provided by Community Bank Mansfield and District, to support a script writing workshop and script development.
Remember, your banking can make a real difference - community banking is based on a ‘profit-with-purpose’ model, which means profits are reinvested back into the community that has generated them.
So tune in to hear all the fun and find out what happens in “Driving Me Crazy”, broadcast every Sunday afternoon throughout May on “Radio Theatre” - right after the three o’clock news.
