Boy with the Transistor Radio
Short Play, Drama / 7m, 3f
Terry is leaving school with few prospects in his native Liverpool. His father finds him a job in a local warehouse, but Terry has other ideas. Living in a dream world promulgated by a radio DJ to whom he listens constantly, Terry is convinced there is something better and he makes an angry escape bid.
