Afternoon Drama, A Kidnapping Episode 1 of 3

Daniel Ryan and Jade Matthew (who won the 2015 BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Debut Performance for her role in A KIDNAPPING) play two British teachers at an international school in Manila who attempt to kidnap the 10-year-old son of a prominent Filipino politician. It's a simple get-rich quick plan that turns out not to be quite as straightforward as they had hoped.

A fast-paced thriller and a grand, comic morality tale set and recorded in the Philippines.
