Aden Rolfe » Like a Writing Desk / ABC RN / 2014
Like a Writing Desk is a dark comedy about the power of myth and the failure of ego. It’s also about crows. And ravens. Written and co-directed by Aden, this radio mockumentary features the talents of Marcus Graham (Home and Away, Mulholland Drive), Zoe Carides (Mystery Road, Not Suitable for Children) and Mitchell Butel (South Pacific, Avenue Q). Like a Writing Desk made the official selection for the prestigious Prix Marulić and the Prix Italia radio festivals. It was first broadcast on 1 June 2014 and played to a packed house at The Wheeler Centre for the Emerging Writers’ Festival in the same year. Crikey gave it 4½ stars, calling the work an 'impeccable and evocative 40-odd minutes of audio theatre'.
