**** “A fascinating series of experimental audio dramas… characteristically rambunctious dialogue of Johnny McKnight…. all sharp-tongued wisecracks… creating a touching evocation of a world of reduced horizons where everything stands or falls on the success of a homemade curry.” The Guardian
“a little slice of big-hearted comic joy… packed with sharp jokes and acerbic wit” Exeunt Magazine
He’s just trying to cook a curry for the man he’s grown to love. He’s been neglecting his maw, not calling, not joining in with the zoom trivia. Now, as he tries to build the nerve to say how he feels, it is her voice that comes to the fore. Taunting him, criticising, teasing and above all telling the truth the way only a mother can. A gentle comedy riding waves of self doubt, insecurity and fragile romance, in one mans attempt to express his love for his friend and come to terms with the voices in his head.
