The Drum


Two scientists, stranded in the middle of nowhere. Living together in a run-down shed. Working together to try and make sense of the strange and hostile world that surrounds them. Playing games and making music to help pass the time. Nothing for company but an old wireless.

But as the radio waves begin to rise up around them, will they sink or swim?

Performed entirely without dialogue by Tom Lyall and Jamie Wood and created by writer/director Chris Goode, Longwave is a seductively bleak comedy with a tender heart.

Running time: approximately 75 minutes.

This wordless and highly eloquent 75 minute piece reels you in until there is no surrender…
Tom Lyall and Jamie Wood are outstanding in a quiet, centred, unshowy sort of way

The Guardian

Who would have thought an ode to blokes and their sheds could be so beautiful? Directed with an intuitively gentle touch by Chris Goode, Longwave is steeped in the charm and wry humour of much of his work.
