An Angel at my Table

Portrait of Janet Frame writer of 'An Angel at my Table'
Autobiography of New Zealand writer Janet Frame


Janet Frame published eleven novels, four collections of short stories, and poems. She received an ONZ and CBE for services to literature. But her body of work is often overshadowed by her misdiagnosis of schizophrenia. This dramatisation tells that story, also of her recovery and self-recreation as writer of international recognition.

'An Angel at My Table'  was first broadcast January 2013 as a Classic Serial in two 60 minute episodes. Starring Lorraine Ashbourne, Barbara Ewing and Anna Skellern.


It was produced by Karen Rose of Sweet Talk Productions.  Sound design by David Thomas.

Winner of Radio Drama Award
