The Sky Is Wider

A radio drama about the inner world of a woman who balances on the edge between consciousness and unconsciousness. Ella lies in hospital and she seems to be completely unconscious. She doesn’t respond to the doctors’ or her daughter’s questions, never moves or opens her eyes.

However, she is aware of what is happening around her. The drama by English playwright Linda Marshall Griffiths reveals how a person who is imprisoned in their own body feels and what their family go through.
