The Steps, by Mike Bartlett

Contains some strong language. Haunted by her past Rosie (Geraldine McEwan) escapes from her old people's home, and meets a woman (Julia Ford) and a girl, both of whom are on the run.

This programme contains some strong language.

A new play, specially written for Radio 3, which follows an elderly lady, Rosie, who lives in an old people's home. She escapes into the wintry landscape outside with a reluctant teenager tagging along behind her. On her journey, she meets a woman in her 30s and a nine-year-old girl and discovers some interesting coincidences: they are on the run too and are also both called Rosie.
