The Exuberant

By Jeff Young

Jack 'Space' Hopper is an Exuberant - meaning he hunts for meteorites. So if your house has been hit by a rock from outer space, he'll turn up on your doorstep with money in his pocket, a magnet on a stick and a mad desire to touch your fridge.

Jack's on the hunt for a space rock that's come down somewhere slightly to the east of Aberystwyth. His arch nemesis, and object of unrequited desire, is the flame-haired, musk-scented Aurora. But who will find the rock first?

A comedy about the mad desire to catch a falling star. Written by radio, TV and theatre writer Jeff Young and starring Adeel Akhtar (Utopia, Four Lions), Victoria Elliott (Hebburn), Eiry Thomas (Stella) and Ifan Huw Dafydd (Gavin and Stacey).

Directed by James Robinson
A BBC Cymru Wales Production.
