Multi-platinum singer, song-writer and actor Sting will star in an upcoming BBC radio drama “I Must Have Loved You.”
Co-created with writer Michael Chaplin, the play follows a young singer in search of success.
Sting has appeared on Broadway stages, in iconic films and in previous Radio 4 adaptations of Mervyn Peak‘s novels.
“I Must Have Loved You” features music by Sting, and he will also play the role of Vince, the father of the family. Chaplin said it has been a deeply rewarding pleasure to work with Sting in fashioning a song-strewn story about a musical family in Newcastle.
“The play travels as far as the Grand Canyon, but is rooted in the city where we grew up and which remains an inspiration,” he added. Alison Hindell, Radio 4 Commissioning Editor for Drama and Fiction adds, “I’m delighted that Sting and Michael have brought us such a powerful story, and one which is informed by first-hand observations of the music industry.”
“I Must Have Loved You” will be broadcast on Radio 4 and available on BBC Sounds beginning at 2:45 pm on March 19.
