Quarantine

Saturday 25 August 2007 21:00-22:00 (Radio 3)

By Jeff Young.

Forty-three-year-old leafleter Milton lives in fear, but while everyone else is scared of terrorists and bird flu, Milton is terrified of envelopes, of germs in mayonnaise, of letterboxes and pizza delivery bikes.

But when he's nominated for the Pamphleteer of the Year Award, Milton has to find a 'plus one'. Doreen Wilson, a 73-year-old agoraphobic recluse, agrees to be his date, but as they hurtle towards the big night determined to re-engage with the rest of humanity, will this unlikely pair take their place at last in a world where they are not afraid?
