A play for radio by ANGELA CARTER based on her own short story
' It is a northern country; a late. brief spring, a cool summer and then the cold sets in again. When the snow comes, it precipitates in this inhospitable terrain a trance of being, an extended dream that lurches, now and then, into nightmare. Now is the time the wild beasts come out, now is the savage time of the year, nothing left for the wolves to eat - ,'
Other parts played by PETER-BALDWIN, EVE KARPF, ELIZABETH RIDER, JEREMY BOOKER and EMMA-KATE DAVIES. Directed by GLYN DEARMAN followed by an interlude
