Mrs Robinson, I Presume
A new radio play written by and starring Tracy Ann Oberman airs next week.
Telling the real life story behind the 1967 movie The Graduate, Mrs Robinson, I Presume features a star-studded cast including John Simm (Life on Mars, Doctor Who) as director Mike Nichols, Paul Kaye as producer Lawrence Turman, Kevin Bishop (Star Stories) as Dustin Hoffman, Terry Mynott (The Morgana Show) as Gene Hackman, Steve Furst(Little Britain, Catterick) as Mel Brooks and Lorelei King (Chef, Bob the Builder) as Ava Gardner.
Also featuring Oberman herself as Anne Bancroft, the play tells of the struggle that Nichols and Turman faced convincing Hollywood that Hoffman was a suitable Benjamin Braddock, and how their classic movie went on to define a generation and change Hollywood forever.
The play can be heard on Friday 24th April at 2:15pm, and will be available on iPlayer worldwide shortly after transmission.
Tracy is featured in this week’s edition of Radio Times discussing the piece, as well as posing as Mrs Robinson for a photo shoot, which she teased on Twitter yesterday.
