First broadcast: on BBC Radio 3

by Michael Wall.
A "radio road movie" with Toyah Wilcox as Yuka and Jeremy Flynn as Boy.

Boy claims that he was driving before he could walk, but perhaps he's been on the road so long it just feels that way. Driving with Yuka, picking things up from lost cities and knocking no-hopers off the road. But then something starts to happen. Boy starts using new words and it takes a handshake from his mother to get him back on the rails.
This play, by the late author of Hiroshima: the Movie, Amongst Barbarians and Women Laughing, was recorded in 1986 but has never been broadcast until now. With its bold use of sound and soundtrack, it is well suited to the experimentally-inclined Studio Three.
Music by David Chilton and Mia Soteriou
