Warm, funny and charismatic, Mark is a nursing home carer. And although he’s bristling with banter and sassy one-liners, Mark has had enough of playing to his bubbly, gay stereotype. Truth be told, Mark’s lonely. So lonely, in fact, that he’s gone to extreme measures to find company.
You’ll meet Mark, those he cares for, and a lost dog called George in Duet for one, the seventh of eight 10 minute plays, in the audio play series, On the Street Where We Live.
This is a binaural recording so we recommend you use headphones for the best listening experience.
