What to expect

A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama starring James Alexandrou (Martin Fowler, 'EastEnders'), originally broadcast as the 'Afternoon Play' on 7 December 2010. Giant. Upstairs. Ten quid a look. A touchingly real and comically disingenuous story about the awkwardness of being misshapen, and the misery of not fitting in. Starring James Alexandrou as Liam, Candassaie Liburd as Ethel and Marcella Riordan as Pat. Also featured in the cast are Julia Deakin, Sophie Pemberton, Manjeet Mann and Inam Mirza. Written by Ali Taylor and directed by Jessica Dromgoole.
