Miss You Still

45 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 01 August 2013

Lenny Henry plays Charlie, a Midlands bus driver, who has shut himself off from the world. Joyce, who works at the bus garage, is a newly appointed lay preacher. She sends Charlie her feisty teenage daughter to help him clean up his life. Joyce's daughter is a wannabe-singer with a gym-obsessed boyfriend. The last thing she wants on her hands is a smelly old man who hears voices.

Directed by Claire Grove

Lenny Henry stars in his second original play for Radio 4. Set in the Midlands Miss You still is a ghost story and a love story. It's about facing the truth. Only by admitting responsibility for the past can Charlie begin to deal with the present. There are four vibrant characters: Charlie, the reclusive bus driver, Joyce, a lay-preacher who works in admin at the bus depot, Roxanne, Joyce's feisty 16 year old daughter and Kulvinder, Roxanne's gym-obsessed boyfriend.

Lenny Henry is currently starring in Fences in the West End, Clare Perkins is Ava Hartman in EastEnders, Bunmi Mojekwu is in Romeo and Juliet at the National Theatre, and Amit Shah is currently filming The Smoke for Sky 1. This is thirteen year old Tranae Sinclair's radio debut and she is also in Fences in the West End.
