Hannah Boyde plays Daphne in BBC Radio 4’s moving ‘fictional-documentary’ Daphne & Apollo, in which the actors are interviewed in character and respond with semi-improvised performances. Daphne & Apollo was first broadcast on Radio 4 Tuesday 19th February and available on iPlayer afterwards.

In this drama about economic abuse, or the financial exploitation side of domestic abuse, Daphne falls wildly in love and in six short months loses everything. She then attempts to fight for justice…but can she get her voice heard?
