Lovely, yet feeling unloved. In fact, so low in self-esteem and desperate for a soulmate that she seeks out the sort of people she wouldn’t normally entertain. And when her online searches result in less than ideal encounters, she starts to question who she is and what she wants from life. It’s a re-evaluation that highlights the importance of self-worth and ultimately leads to redemption.
You’ll meet Caoimhe, her housemate, dodgy digital suitors and hear more about lost dog George in Ginger Beer & Low Self-Esteem, the sixth in a series of eight audio plays called On the Street Where We Live.
Written by Ciara Elizabeth Smyth
Caoimhe voiced by Ruby Campbell
