"Benedict has been sober for 25 years. On the day of his father's funeral, he learns he has left him an unsettling final request. Benedict's father loved wine. He collected it and found sharing it with his friends and family an act of love and joy. But his son is an alcoholic. We witness how this has affected both their lives and their relationship in this drama based on Marcus Brigstocke's own experience of recovery."
First aired 05/09/2017 in the afternoon on BBC Radio 4. Click here to listen to Marcus' first radio drama on iPlayer Radio.
The Wilsons Save The World
Marcus stars as Mike in his brand new sitcom for BBC Radio 4. Co-written with Sarah Morgan, and
co-starring Kerry Godliman as Mike's wife - Max.
"Michael and Maxine Wilson and their teenage daughters, Lola and Cat (plus their bearded dragon Chomsky, and about 150,000 bees) have resolved to live a cleaner, greener, serener life. This is a show about living ethically... whatever that means. The Wilsons Save The World is unashamedly ‘The Good Life’ for the new millennium. Millions of people try every day to make ‘good’ choices and do the ‘right thing’, be ethical, charitable and community minded. It’s hard. Most of us live with hypocrisy and failure all the time but keep on trying. The Wilsons, good folk that they are, are trying about 20% harder and learning to live with about 19% more failure. They are not giving up."
'The Wilsons Save The World' is due to be recorded on the 8th of October and the 4th of November. To apply to be part of the live audience for the recordings, click here.
