Publisher's Summary

‘Market' is an umbrella series of six plays, originally broadcast in BBC Radio 4's 'Afternoon Play' slot, about people who work in and around its stalls. Each story is a self-contained quirky tale.

'Loco Parentis' is a bitter-sweet comedy about Jim, who can't sleep because his daughter's left for Uni, his business is going belly-up, and his father is going gaga. Oh, and to top it all he suspects his wife is having an affair with her boss. He needs to escape - but where to?

The play was originally broadcast on 24 January 2011 and stars Reece Dinsdale as Jim. Also featured in the cast are Gerard Fletcher, Bobby Knutt, Sue Kelly, Kathryn Hunt, Ellie Meigan-Rose, Joncie Elmore, Szilvi Naray Davey and Sam Hevicon. With original music by Steven D. Reid, this is a modern morality play with a whiff of the fantastical about it. Produced by Peter Leslie Wild.
