The Wainwrights [Drama]


2013110520151103 (R4)By Tom Wainwright.

Anarchic comedy-drama. When farmer Barry changes radio station and hears himself as the star of a daily soap drama he fears for his sanity and grapples wildly with questions of free will and identity. As the rest of the village turn against him, he sets off on a quest to track down the broadcaster responsible but finds himself falling further into the wormhole.
