Every choice has a price.
Ella loves her job. Designing solutions for houses with unusual shaped rooms. And she ‘s good at it. In fact they are all good at their jobs apart from maybe Bronwyn who just happens to be the daughter of the owner of the construction company.
But business is not good due to the economic climate and there may be redundancies. But who will have to go? Neil has been there forever. Samira has ‘connections’. Bronwyn is family. Poor Ella is the last in first out. But who gets to decide?
Enter Geoff. No qualms about feelings or fairness for him. But the others? It’s every man for himself and every choice has a price. How far would you go?
What an entertaining piece of radio theatre. Well-written and brilliantly acted. Food for thought. I’m still reeling…
