A new single radio drama written and directed by Tony Pitts, PACT was selected by the Radio Times for its 'Today's Choices' segment for tomorrow, Friday 11th July, when it will transmit on BBC Radio 4 at 2.15pm.
The internet has the potential to be an enlightened space - but also one that can reach some of the darkest corners of the human psyche. It’s a place to find like-minded individuals, support networks, other people with a similar outlook on life.
But what if your outlook on life is death? What if the first time you meet somebody you take your life together? What kind of support is that? A permanent solution to a temporary problem, a desolate dark place where all hope has disappeared? A pact. Two strangers, one goal.
Narrated by Richard Hawley, with Tony Pitts as Richard, Maxine Peake as Fiona, Gwyneth Powell as Richard’s Mum, Dominic Brunt as Landlord Ken and Polly Maberly as Yvonne.
Written and directed by Tony Pitts. Original music by Richard Hawley.
