RTÉ Radio 1 Drama On One

Small Plastic Wars by Pat McGrath

Joe says more to his 1:35 scale Sherman than to his wife!..

Joe has more to say to his to 1:35 scale Sherman tank than to his wife and children, because we know men don’t talk!

When the Irish economy comes tumbling down like a house of cards, Joe is at a loss as to how to deal with unemployment and the constant stream of bills the postman keeps delivering. His wife, sick of seeing him moping around, suggests he should clear out the unbuilt model kits from the wardrobe. Little does she know Joe’s rediscovered long forgotten hobby will become his perfect escape from reality. Can there be a happy ending?

Written and performed by Pat McGrath, Directed by Alan King

Produced for RTÉ Radio by Kevin Reynolds
