The Glad Giver, a play for radio celebrating Julian of Norwich


Author Jill Korn was interviewed by Rob Jelly for BBC East which includes Radio Norfolk together with Zanna Foley-Davies, who played Julian of Norwich, and John Boyd, who produced the play.  If you enjoyed the play, listen to the interview HERE or more insights into how we made it happen.  You can hear it at 29:24 minutes:seconds in.

Here's some lovely feedback on the new Radio Play written specially for the 650th Anniversary.  It comes from a friend of Zanna, the actor who plays Julian. The friend, who is a lay member of the Franciscan community, rightly praises Zanna's performance and writes:


"I have just listened to The Glad Giver and found it really powerful....

I found it thought provoking and I know it will linger in my mind.

In 30 minutes you brought together a lot of what spiritual writers try to impart in many thousands of words in mountains of books.

This needs to be shared widely.

It imparts a powerful message of faith embedded in realism.

I think it will have a huge impact on those who hear it as it has done me."
