Everyone craves a place where their mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, your tired mind can wander.

This is the nearest faraway place for Patrick Marber and Peter Curran. Here they endeavour to get the heart of things in an entertainingly vague and indirect way. This is not the place for typical male banter. From under the bed clothes they play each other music from The Residents and Gerry Rafferty, archive of JG Ballard and Virginia Woolf. Life, death, work and family are their slightly warped conversational currency.

Writers/Performers:

PETER CURRAN is a publisher, writer and documentary maker. A former carpenter, his work ranges from directing films about culture in Africa, America and Brazil to writing and presenting numerous Arts and culture programmes for both radio and television.

PATRICK MARBER co-wrote and performed in On The Hour and Knowing Me, Knowing You..with Alan Partridge. His plays include Dealer's Choice, After Miss Julie, Closer and Don Juan in Soho. Marber also wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for the film Notes on a Scandal.

Producer: Peter Curran.

02012015061720191106 (R4)Two men in darkness, sharing a bunk bed and a stream of semi-consciousness about family, relationships, work and imagined life.

We all crave a place where our mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place from daily life. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, the restless mind can wander.

After an acclaimed reception by The Independent, The Sunday Telegraph, The Observer and Radio 4 listeners, Bunk Bed returns with its late night stream of semi-concsciousness.

In this episode, under cover of darkness, the bedfellows discuss the first time they kissed a girl as youths, and older men they would consder leaving their families for - if only theoretically.

Elsewhere in the series, Patrick and Peter deal with therapy, Chas and Dave, children's happiness, JRR Tolkien, Babycham, Aldous Huxley and correction fluid - among a ragbag of subjects.

She won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival for her harrowing performance in the film Nil By Mouth. Now, sadly, she has to spend the night with a pair of middle-aged men who can't stop talking.

Together they discuss fatness, smoking in the bath, and the horror of Hollywood stars who improvise.

04012017082420191204 (R4)Patrick Marber and Peter Curran's critically acclaimed talk through the darkness.

Everyone craves a place where their mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, your tired mind can wander...

The acclaimed Bunk Bed written by and featuring Patrick Marber and Peter Curran returns for its fourth series with a dozy vengeance. From under the bedclothes, they wonder what services were on offer after hearing rare archive of H G Wells admitting that he used to earn his living as "a prostitute". They also grapple with one of the most ferociously bad pop singles of all time - Cinderella Rockerfella - and get to the heart of the British aristocracy's perverse attitude to dogs. And the unlikely bedfellows deal with the emotional scars left by seeing a father wearing trousers made from horizontal corduroy.

The acclaimed Bunk Bed written by and featuring Patrick Marber and Peter Curran returns for its fourth series with a dozy vengeance. Up there with Brian Johnson's famous dissolve into helpless laughter while commentating on cricket, this Bunk Bed boasts a similarly hilarious breakdown as the award-winning actor and director Kathy Burke relates her memories of reading saucy novels aloud for an audience of fellow teenagers in the 1970s. Curran and Marber fight over concepts of male sensitivity, only to be severely admonished by their guest, and the unlikely bedfellows discuss how the words of The Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen now mock them in middle-age.

04022017083120191211 (R4)Patrick Marber and Peter Curran's critically acclaimed talk through the darkness.

Everyone craves a place where their mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, your tired mind can wander...

The acclaimed Bunk Bed written by and featuring Patrick Marber and Peter Curran returns for its fourth series with a dozy vengeance. Up there with Brian Johnson's famous dissolve into helpless laughter while commentating on cricket, this Bunk Bed boasts a similarly hilarious breakdown as the award-winning actor and director Kathy Burke relates her memories of reading saucy novels aloud for an audience of fellow teenagers in the 1970s. Curran and Marber fight over concepts of male sensitivity, only to be severely admonished by their guest, and the unlikely bedfellows discuss how the words of The Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen now mock them in middle-age.

This is the nearest faraway place for Patrick Marber and Peter Curran. Here they try to get the heart of things in an entertainingly vague and indirect way. This is not the place for typical male banter.

From under the bed clothes they play each other music and archive of H G Wells, a Russian radio station for spies and cheesy pop anthems. Work, family, literature, and their own badly-scuffed dreams are the funny, if warped, conversational currency.

0406 LAST20170928Rising Damp legend Don Warrington joins Peter Curran and Patrick Marber in the dark.

In the last of the current series, the unlikely trio of actor Don Warrington, playwright Patrick Marber and writer/producer Peter Curran lie in the dark together and discuss life's great mysteries.

What did medieval children build in the sand when on a beach holiday? What is the definition of heavy breathing? Did someone, 400 years ago, change Shakespeare's tragic words spoken by King Lear for a laugh, and to wind-up older actors forever?

Don Warrington played student lodger Philip opposite Leonard Rossiter's Rigsby in the classic TV sitcom Rising Damp. After a successful career on stage and screen, he now finds himself laying on the floor and trying to get to sleep on a pull-out mattress while being talked at by two people, uncomfortable in their Bunk Bed.
