Based on characters from Ada Leverson's trilogy of novels, Martyn Wade draws the delightful and romantic entanglements of the Ottleys to a close.

Edith, Aylmer and Bruce, in this infernal, triangular charade seem as helpless and doomed as they ever were. Edith's scheme of shuttling between Aylmer (the love of her life) and Bruce (her hopeless former husband) collapses. What, Edith wonders, is to be done? ...

Produced and Directed by Tracey Neale

The Writer:

Martyn Wade's recent credits for radio aside from five series of The Little Ottleys, are two composer plays - Moeran's Last Symphony and The Healing of Sergei Rachmaninov and Singles and Doublets. A stage play - The Most Gorgeous Lady Blessington was performed at The Wallace Collection.
Martyn expertly took up the baton from Ada Leverson and not only writes fresh and funny dialogue for those existing characters but has also created some brilliant new characters for the Ottley series too.
