Signposts and Route Maps

Life's not like a scene in a play where each character has his or her own motivation or journey. Life lacks the signposts provided by a script that knows where it's heading. Felicity Finch considers goal-orientated and extemporised lives, drawing on the words of acting teacher Utah Hagen, the writing of Dave Eggers and Milan Kundera, poetry by Joyce Sutphen and Philip Larkin and music by Liszt, Clara Schumann and Ornette Coleman.

A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 4.
