*****

Inside a cryonics facility, seven people are woken from their icy slumber to find themselves alone in a locked room, unsure of what day, month or year it is. These strangers from different places and times must work out when they are – and where everyone else has gone!

Thaw: A Science Fiction Play is showing at the Nexus Theatre at Murdoch University until Saturday,as a part of FringeWorld. I spoke to writer / director Stephen B. Platt about the production – and the rarely-seen world of science fiction on the stage.

*****

Recreational arts – it’s something that sounds good for us – but just how good?

Whether it’s great for your mental health, general well-being or good for society in general – these are questions that a group of UWA researchers have taken on board with a new study.

I interviewed an author of the study, from the school of population and health at UWA, Dr Christina Davies.

*****

Tremendous thanks to the radio station RTRFM, where the first interview aired previously, especially producer Peter Barr.
