Alan Ayckbourn's play, adapted for radio by Martyn Read

Starring Joanna van Gyseghem as Barbara, Cameron Stewart as Hamish, Gavin Muir as Gilbert and Teresa Gallagher as Nikki.

This comic masterpiece is an hilarious and cruel view of love - avoiding it, yearning for it and falling head over heels in it. Barbara has chosen to live alone. Her immaculate flat is a male-free and child-free zone. As lady of the house, she rents out the bottom flat to Gilbert, a postman with a passion for painting. Her role in life is to remain single and to look after her boss. When her old school friend, Nikki, moves into the upstairs flat with her fiancé, Hamish, Barbara is there to keep an eye on her. However, her orderly life quickly takes a very different direction.

Things We Do For Love has been deemed one of the best plays of the 1990s.

Producer: Gordon House.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2000.
