Bullet in My Pocket: Radio Drama


Summary: a story about a robbery in a bank.

(A couple is in a way to bank to save their money)

Anna : (sounds of road) Where are we going, honey?

Harry : We want to go to bank; I would like to save my money that I got yesterday.

Anna : Why do you save all of your money? It is better if you give a half of it to me. (laughing)

Harry : Oh you can get it honey, if you want to use the money you can just take it from ATM, but I think it is safer to save the money in the bank than in our house.

Anna : Oh okay, I’m just kidding.

(Harry and Anna arrived in dynamic bank)

Harry : (sounds of the bank doors opened and closed and footsteps) Good morning, I want to put my money in my savings account (Sounds of people chattering in the bank)

Stephanie : Good morning, of course sir, first, may I check your saving account book.

Harry : Oh sure, here it is. (sounds of giving a book)

Stephanie : Wait a minute (sounds of turning pages of the book)

Stephanie : How much money do you want to put in your account?

Harry : 500 dollars.

Robber 1 : (sounds of machine gun) Put your hands in the air, motherfuckers! (Sounds of chaos)

Robber 2 : Don’t be afraid, we are not going to hurt you if you do what we want!

(Sounds of people screaming)

Robber 3 : Don’t move or I will kill you all! (Sounds of gunshot and people screaming)

Anna : Harry I’m afraid, help me. (sobbing)

Harry : Don’t be afraid baby, I will protect you, stand behind me.

    Wow! Actually I really like your work. The best moment that I love is when the teller shout. It gives more tension and goosebumps to me. The plot itself flows quite quickly. Unfortunately, the end of the story goes too fast, so I cannot find the climax of the story. At the beginning, I think that there will be resistance which is made by the robbers to the police, which can be the climax of this radio drama, but in fact it is not. What I love from this radio drama is the different accent of each character which can be an interested thing in it. Somehow, I laughed when I was listening to this radio drama because of the characters’ voices which are various.

    I find your radio drama very shocking, because you take an event that if turned into a movie would be quite mainstream and make it into an interesting radio drama. What interests me most is how you can put the precise sounds and voices in the precise moments to make the drama more tense.
    One character that caught my attention most from your radio drama is the character Harry. You portray him as the protective hero, because if he had not called his friend, Peter the police, no one in the bank would be saved.
    I also liked how you make the robbers turn into such cowards when the police showed up.
