Posted by William Spear in >> News, >> Radio Drama.

On Wednesday 12 March 2008, at 7:30 pm, a 30th anniversary live performance of radio script material from Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will be performed by members of the original cast at the Royal Geographical Society, South Kensington, London.

The performance will follow the Sixth Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture by Steven Pinker titled “The Stuff of Thought: Language as a Window into Human Nature”.

Artists hoping to take part include:

  • Simon Jones as Arthur Dent
  • Geoffrey McGivern as Ford Prefect
  • Mark Wing Davey as Zaphod Beeblebrox
  • Susan Sheridan as Trillian
  • Roger Gregg as Eddie
  • Stephen Moore as Marvin The Paranoid Android
  • With a Very Special Guest as the Voice Of The Book

The funniest and most thought-provoking science fiction comedy ever was premiered on BBC Radio 4 on March 8th 1978. This live 30th anniversary performance of script material from the series reunites original cast members who worked on all the “phases” of Hitchhikers, from Primary to Quintessential.

This is a celebration of all that was unique and astonishing about Douglas Adams’ talent, in aid of his favourite cause, SAVE THE RHINO INTERNATIONAL and distils the essence of his greatest creation into a live event, performed on stage with music and sound effects as if a classic audience radio recording.
