    Everyone craves a place where their mind and body are not applied to a particular task. The nearest faraway place. Somewhere for drifting and lighting upon strange thoughts which don't have to be shooed into context, but which can be followed like balloons escaping onto the air. Late at night, in the dark and in a bunk bed, your tired mind can wander.

    Produced by Peter Curran, The Foghorn Co. for BBC Radio 4.

    Baldness and Bambi

    Baldness and Bambi

    This is the nearest faraway place for Patrick Marber and Peter Curran. Here they endeavour to get the heart of things in an entertainingly vague and indirect way. This is not the place for typical male banter. From under the bed clothes they play each other snippets of music and the voices of famous dead people from BBC Archive. Childhood, ruined ambition, work, family and death are their slightly warped conversational currencies.

    Writers/Performers:

    PETER CURRAN is a publisher, broadcaster, writer and BBC documentary maker working in South Africa, America, Brazil, Ireland, and the Arctic Circle. He’s written and presented numerous Arts and culture programmes for both radio and television.

    PATRICK MARBER is a playwright, director and screenwriter. He co-wrote and performed in Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge, and The Day Today. His plays include Dealer's Choice, After Miss Julie, Closer, Don Juan in Soho, and The Red Lion.
