The Pursuits of Darleen Fyles
Monday 13 July
7:45pm - 8:00pm
BBC Radio 4
You'll want to step into this drama - sometimes when Darleen has a little whine but usually because you'll be aching to help her cope. Following a successful Friday Play last year, writer Esther Wilson brings us a new drama that sees her young heroine starting her first job and hoping to move in with her boyfriend. It's somehow both central to the story and simultaneously an aside that both Darleen and Donna Lavin (the actress playing the part) have learning difficulties. It's a vibrant and never over-played look at young life that happens to have a few more challenges than the average.
Radio Times reviewer - William Gallagher
