  • Overview
    Spoonface Steinberg is a play by British playwright Lee Hall, first broadcast as a dramatic monologue on 27 January 1997.

    It began life as the fourth and final play in the God's Country series of linked radio dramas broadcast in 1997 on BBC Radio 4. However, due to its success (it went on to sell thousands of copies on cassette) it has come to overshadow the other plays in the sequence somewhat, and is commonly thought of as a standalone piece.

    Spoken by a 7 year old autistic girl who is dying from cancer, the original recording was performed by Becky Simpson who won two awards for her performance.
