David was in a radio play called Sunburst Finish written by Andrea Gibb with Paddy Cunneen.  It was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 as the Friday Play from 9:00 - 10:00 PM on May 24, 2002.

"A final year music student has everything going for him - except that he does not want to live."

The other cast members were Julie Austin, Eric Barlow and John Kielty and the play was directed by Gaynor Macfarlane.

This is the description of the play from stageplays.com:

Note to self - You are dying’
As a young man’s depression turns to despair, suicide seems the only way out - the only way to take control ...
In spite of the bleakness of its subject, Sunburst Finish is filled with strong and vibrant voices, a rich mosaic of music, wit, warmth, insight, feeling, and a remarkable lack of sentimentality
The central character’s struggle to come to terms with himself and the world around him is one that all young (and not so young) people will relate strongly to.
