Ashes to Ashes
A series of readings from new writers to radio evoking the South Downs.
Episode 1: Ashes to Ashes by Sara Sarre
A gentle tale about the dilemmas people face when left with their close relatives ashes and the weight of responsibility to scatter them in the best possible place. Julia can't decide what to do with her father's ashes, and matters are made worse when she becomes convinced that her husband, Phil is seeing another woman. Meanwhile, Phil thinks that a holiday would be a good way to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.
Recorded in front of an audience at the Church of St Pancras, Kingston (near Lewes) - a little village nestled at the bottom of the Downs.
