Description   The cast, writers and producer of the RTÉ Radio musical drama 'The Pied Piper', during rehearsals in Studio 9 of the RTÉ Radio Centre on 27 October 1992. This musical was written by Bernard Farrell with music and lyrics by Donovan and was first broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1 on 26 December 1992.

Spike Milligan, who played the Burgermeister, and Donovan, the composer of the music and lyrics, are sitting first and second left respectively in the foreground. Donovan also played the Pier Piper in this production.

Standing behind them, from left to right; three unidentified young girls, actor Conor Farrington (who played Br Malachy), Colette Proctor (as Mother), Naomi Coleman (as one of the Children of Hamelin), Cathryn Brennan (as Ilsa), producer/director Laurence Foster (wearing white shirt, very back of shot), writer Bernard Farrell, actor Daniel Reardon (as Councillor, standing behind two unidentified young boys), Jerry Walsh (as Town Crier/Councillor), Jim Reid (as Fr O'Donnell) and Scott Fredericks (as Dr Verner). The two young boys standing on the right are Barry Glennon (left, as Cormac) and (possibly) Rory Keenan as Karl.

'The Pied Piper' was the first radio drama to be compiled and edited on digital computer. The RTÉ Guide previewed it on 18 December 1992 and the RTÉ staff magazine 'Access' also published an article about it on 17 December 1992.
