Coming to RADIO FOUR...a slice of real life Brighton

'Legsy Gets a Break'
Afternoon play, BBC Radio 4, Monday 15th February, 2.15pm
Legsy Gets a Break follows a young man at a crossroads in his life after growing up in the care system.  Will family loyalty suck him into a future of serious crime or can he break away and make another life for himself? 

This drama began in 2007 as part of the Arts Council of England South East's  Radio Development Programme.  
It is based on real cases that emerged during work with youth offending teams in Brighton and Hove, West Sussex and Southampton.  This formed the basis of a five part interactive project created with Radio Berkshire.  Company Paradiso has created this latest version with Phil Gladwin, it is written by Phil Gladwin, and directed for Radio 4 by John Dryden
