The podcast website for this play reads: We’ve teamed up with the Stop Loan Sharks Campaign to produce an innovative, five-part micro-drama called DOUBLE BUBBLE. It’s written by, and also stars, Carl Cattermole, who himself spent time behind bars.
Double Bubble is English prison slang which means lending at a hundred percent interest. The play is based on the true story of Mark, who borrowed some money in prison to help his family out. The interest he owed was ‘double bubble’, plus any costs incurred for collection. By the end of the third month, Mark’s wife couldn’t afford the repayments and the children were suffering. When she refused to pay, things got really bad for her on the outside. And behind bars, there was nothing Mark could do to help.
The 5 podcasts are on the NPR website .
Written and voiced by Carl Cattermole, produced by Katie Bilboa, mastering by Steve Wyatt, artwork by Imogen Shaw.
