Long Way From Home comedy play

3 February 2018

For those on the lookout for some comedy to shake up their Big Finish listening, tune into Long Way From Home, available on BBC Radio Wales and/or on iPlayer for a drama featuring some Big Finish talent.

This 27-minute comedy special, written and directed by Scott Handcock and co-written and produced by Jay Harley, is a co-production with the BBC and Big Finish, and definitely one for fans of egg mayo sandwiches – although to find out why, you’ll just have to listen in…

Rhys’ eighteenth birthday will involve the traditional trip to Ynyslas, with parents Eleri and Noel and best friend Jenna. They return to the same old static caravan as they have for the last eighteen years, enjoy the same ‘surprise’ birthday tea… but this year is about to change everything.

Rhys has chosen this birthday to tell his parents his big secret – if Jenna can reassure him and keep him on track. But a father and son trek out to the dunes of Ynyslas is more revelatory than Rhys could ever have imagined!

Starring in Long Way From Home are two names which will be particularly familiar to Big Finish Torchwood fans. Kai Owen (Rhys Williams in Torchwood) plays Noel alongside Alexandria Riley (Torchwood Series 5, Aliens Among Us) as Eleri. They are joined by Laura Singleton (Or Something Better) playing Jenna and Justin Davies (Stella, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children) who plays Rhys.

There are only 23 days left to catch Long Way From Home before it ends on iPlayer so tune in soon!
