The Apple Picker, A Chris Wade Film

March 19th, 2017

applepicker17aToyah’s voice is heard in scripted dialogue in the new freely released Chris Wade film The Apple Picker.

Toyah fans will be familiar with the name Chris Wade as Toyah collaborated with him on the track Drinking From The Gun for the Dodson & Fogg album White House On The Hill.

A darkly comic surreal drama about an old man who, disjointed from the world around him, looks back upon his life, and the darkest corners of his psyche.

Featuring Jack Napier, Chris Wade, Shawn Dimery, Linzi Napier and Andy Wade. Also features voice work by legendary actors Toyah Willcox and Nigel Planer.

Chris Wade is an acclaimed writer, musician and filmmaker. He runs the cult music project Dodson and Fogg, releases comedy audiobooks (Cutey and the Sofaguard, narrated by Rik Mayall), fiction and non fictions books.

The film is free but if you enjoyed it, feel free to donate to the film’s tip jar to support the filmmaker.
