Of A Night Drama on 4
By Paul Jones
From the winner of the Alfred Bradley Bursary Award 2021 for Northern writers new to radio, comes a new pressure cooker drama, delving into the realities of Britain’s social housing crisis. Set over one busy night shift in an understaffed, overworked Liverpool Housing Association call centre, we meet the people on the front line fielding emergency calls.
Tony’s been here six years, tonight he’s training up newbie Julie. ‘Calls in the queue’ flash repeatedly on screen. Mhairi’s got no leccy and Mrs Jarosz’s got a leak in her kitchen. Then there’s Mr Davies who’s got a long list of complaints- welcome to social housing…
