I hadn’t posted about this: back in July, Daisy Ridley has teamed up with UK scribe Elinor Cook, a writer on season 3 of Killing Eve, on Audible Original drama Islanders, about a reality TV contestant.
The Audible Emerging Playwright commission tells the story of a young woman, performed by Ridley, who has always felt invisible. When she becomes a contestant on a televised dating show, she’s thrust into a manufactured paradise. To remain in the game, she tries on different personas and partners. But as the days – or weeks – pass and the lines between truth and fiction blur, she must confront her long-held anxieties about identity and the desire to be seen…all while the cameras are rolling.
