LOCAL drama group the Apex Players are tackling a festive “radio play” for their next stage appearance.

Robert Grice, chairman of the Apex Players, said: “We got the idea after Alan McPhail, who is directing this production, and myself went to see a Christmas show a few years ago.

We found it absolutely gripping, and were particularly impressed by the sound effects.
