    Full-length original radio play. Synopsis: Colin Teevan's play is loosely based on his own ill-fated trip to Macedonia to direct a major theatre production. Jason has high hopes for his international version of 'Alcmaeon in Corinth'. He embarks on the project with little idea of the forces about to be unleashed against him. Jason ..... Darren Boyd Aleksandar ..... Nikola Kodjabashia Castor/Mayor ..... Ewan Bailey Dragan/Aco ..... Sasha C. Damjanovski Kaliopi ..... Dolya Gavanski Todor/Consul ..... Ivan Marevich Dionysos .... Iain Batchelor Afrodita .... Leah Brotherhead Original music by Nikola Kodjabashia Director: Toby Swift ******************************* Colin Teevan's new play is a timely tale of Western hubris and Eastern European manipulation of the system. Inspired by Colin's own ill-fated trip to work with the National Theatre of Macedonia in 2008, 'Massistonia' follows an English director and his creative team as they try to mount an international touring production of 'Alcmaeon in Corinth'.
