By Al Smith

Carrie is an ambulance call handler. She never knows what the next emergency will be or the effect it might have on her.

And sometimes you have to listen hard to find out exactly what's going on.

Directed by Sally Avens

Al Smith's tense drama goes behind the scenes of an ambulance control room where we hear from Carrie about the job and hear how she deals with the vast disparity of calls that come in - some are literally a matter of life or death and in some of the others well the emergency may be more in the mind of the caller.

Al has written extensively for radio including Life In The Freezer and Everyday Time Machines. He is a graduate of the BBC Writers Academy, has been a broadcast Hot Shot and in 2012 won the BFI Wellcome Trust Screenwriting Prize. His play Harrogate will be at The Royal Court later in the year and also stars Sarah Ridgeway.

Sarah Ridgeway has appeared in Holby City, The Suspicions of Mr Whicher and The Crimson Petal and The White,.
