Blackout

Episode 1 of 4

The sisters' flat is plunged into darkness when they suffer a power cut. Next door neighbour and token family member Blake does not provide the necessary support.

Susan (Susan Calman) and Fiona (Ashley Jensen) are grown up sisters who live together. But that's all they have in common. Written by Susan Calman, Sisters tackles the painfully funny world of the love/hate relationship you can never escape.

In this first episode, the sisters' flat is plunged into darkness when they suffer a power cut. Next door neighbour and token family member Blake (Nick Helm) doesn't provide the necessary support as he is preoccupied with selling something special online. As the darkness continues, fear of intruders and speculation about paranormal activity take hold and all three descend into a world of paranoia and mutual suspicion.

It's a situation exacerbated by the fact that Susan is harbouring a stray cat and is very keen that Fiona doesn't discover this - especially as Fiona is violently allergic to pets of any description.

A Hat Trick production for BBC Radio 4.
