The Man Who Fell to Earth

By Annalisa D'Innella. When a stowaway falls out of a plane and lands on a street in Barnes, the lives of three residents are changed irrevocably.

In the early hours of Sunday 9th September 2012, a young black man fell out of the sky and landed, dead, on a residential street in Barnes. The man had been a stowaway. Through three fictional residents in the street where the body landed, Annalisa D'Innella 's first radio play mixes fact with fiction to explore the experience of being British and middle class.

It's a play about greed, grief, courage, utopias and magical thinking - as well as our universal tendency to focus on what we lack instead of what we have.
