Drama from BBC Radio 4

DRAMA2017021020190124 (R4)Writer and star of the BAFTA-nominated comedy series Timewasters, Breakthrough Brit winner Daniel Lawrence Taylor writes two original plays for Radio 4.

The Thickness is his razor-sharp satire about gender and power.

Marcus is a great Dad - intelligent, involved, cool, creative, spontaneous. So why is his 14 year-old daughter pregnant 'by boredom'? Why is his 17 year-old son trying to get off with Marcus' (latest) 21 year-old girlfriend? Why doesn't his ex-partner talk to him any more?

What's happened to his family - since he's been away?

Produced and directed by Jonquil Panting.

Daniel's second play Black Boy Fly will be broadcast on 7th February.
