Kate Rawson's bleakly funny and frank drama about miscarriage.
Amy inherits a ready-made family when she falls in love with Andy and his young son, Alex. Then she begins to want more.
Kate Rawson is an actor and writer originally from Cornwall, though currently living surrounded by tech giants and giant trees in Northern California. Little Blue Lines is her first play for the radio and is based on a blog she wrote while trying to deal with the anxiety of being pregnant after suffering two miscarriages. It came from a strong desire to smash a silence through art that she did not feel capable of breaking in daily conversations. She has also written a stage play based on the story called Bloody Woman.
