Matt Rippy in The Tango Diaries for BBC Radio 4

Matt Rippy plays Howard in The Tango Diaries, a series of compelling vignettes by Ron Hutchinson, exploring why Tango is such an obsession and a way of life for some people.

Is it the drama, the proximity, the rhythm, the soul-bearing? Five people explain why this astonishing dance means so much to them.

Ron Hutchinson has written extensively for the theatre (Rat in the Skull, Pygmies in the Ruins, Moonlight and Magnolias) and for TV and Film (Bird of Prey, The Ten Commandments). His last radio drama was Ship of Lies in 2019.

Produced and Directed by Clive Brill
