24 Jul 18: Poetry In Motion
By Katie Hims. Five strangers board a train bound for Manchester. They have never met. We hear the thoughts of each person and these soon move from practical matters to inner demons: anxieties over presenting a vital pitch; running away from one's family; the death of a child. Katie Hims brings together the separate story lines and by the time the passengers disembark they all feel a little less lonely. (precis of Jane Anderson's remarks in RT). Valerie - Rachel Davies, Leonard - Alan Williams, Karla - Karla Crome, Reece - Ashley Kumar, Bridie - Adie Allen, Cashier - Kirsty Oswald, Train announcer - Nick Underwood. Producer: Mary Peate.
