To complement Radio 4's News and Current Affairs output, our weekly series presents a short-form dramatic response to a major story from the week's news. Rebecca Lenkiewicz's play looks at two lives affected by the launch of Endeavour this week from Cape Kennedy. It concerns Cal, an offbeat space afficionado (Toby Jones) who lives in the Mojave desert as the busy space programme there enters a new era. Cal communes with Nadezhda (Dina Korzun), a true-life woman Russian astronaut, and in his imagination a close friend. She knows what this new development will mean for the hard-working astronauts involved...

Cal...Toby Jones
Nadezhda...Dina Lorzun
Directed by...Peter Kavanagh.
