Gerontius is about Cardinal Newman, his close relationship with his friend and collaborator, Father Ambrose St John, and the recent controversy about whether the two bodies, buried together at Newman's express wish, should be separated as part of Newman's progress to beatification.
Winner of the 2012 Tinniswood Award for best radio drama script broadcast in 2010.
The judges said: "Wyatt has already won one Tinniswood Award, and we had no doubt that the outstanding fluidity and intelligence of Gerontius, the haunting near-perfection of it, could warrant a second. [...] It has remarkable spiritual depth - sadly all to rare in contemporary drama - and a consistent subtlety of writing."
