Hayley Atwell reads acclaimed author Sadie Jones' new novel, set during the birth of radical theatre in 1970s London; a world in which the four central characters swirl, ambitious, eager yet all facing their own demons.

Luke aspires to be a playwright and, after meeting would-be producer Paul and the feisty Leigh, the three end up flatmates in London. There, they plan to revolutionise the face of theatre , but when they encounter Nina, a damaged young actress, emotions get in the way.

Today: In a room above a pub, Paul, Luke and Leigh form Graft.
