For radio, Ed's first commissioned play PORSHIA was broadcast in 2007 to widespread acclaim (including Radio Times/Time Out 'Pick of the Week', Daily Telegraph 'Review of the Year'), and he has since been continuously under commission to BBC Radio 4. His fourth radio play, The Moment You Feel It, was shortlisted for the 2010 Tinniswood Award, and The Wall for the Prix Europa; he has just won the Writers' Guild Award for his play Troll.
