Following on from Tom Wrigglesworth's Open Letters, Perrier nominated comedian Tom Wrigglesworth returns to Radio 4 with this comedy format. It's a series in which we listen to Tom's telephone calls home to his parents (who are played by actors).
Each episode of Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang Ups is a 30 minute phone call from Tom ringing his parents for his weekly check-in. As the conversation unfolds, Tom takes time out from the phone call to explain the situation to the live studio audience.
Hang Ups explores class, living away from 'home', trans-generational phenomena, what we inherit from our families and how the past repeats in the present. All in a 30 minute phone call.
