Springline Radio Players is part of one of Oxfordshire most exciting and innovative amateur dramatic groups, Springline Productions - www.springlineproductions.com, which was formed in 2007. With numerous pantomimes, variety shows and village events under our belt, it was inevitable that we would turn their hand to "Steam Radio" and with SoundCloud, YouTube and iTunes we are able to present to a wider public base. The idea of the Radio Players started several years ago but with the improvements in digital recording equipment including dramatic price reductions, couple with a partnership with Gobo Theatre Foundation - www.gobotheatre.co.uk, a charity created to help, support, mentor and inspire young people in the theatrical arts, our first radio play was rehearsed in March and recorded and completed in April 2016. Our total focus is to provide quality radio plays to a world-wide internet-based audience, while adding to our membership with like-minded people.

SRP Making Ends Meet
Making Ends Meet - by Peter Higginbotham is a play performed and recorded by Springline Radio Players (www.springlineradioplayers.com.
With more creditors than clients, the Fiona Buckingham Introduction Agency is struggling to make ends meet. Cheap do-it-yourself dating through newspaper Lonely Hearts columns has reduced the membership to almost single figures making it ever harder to match clients up. Even Fiona's secretary, two-finger typist Beverly is getting worried.
Things start to look up when, within the space of two days, two new members join. Reluctant Trevor Hopkins, who likes spiders but prefers to sit downstairs on buses, has been sent along by his aging mother. The other new recruit, Brigadier Gregory Chadwick, a wealthy widower looking for solace, seems to take a shine to Fiona. Could Gregory be the answer to all Fiona's problems?
The text of Making Ends Meet is included in Peter Higginbotham's book
