RTÉ Radio 1 Drama On One

Nothing and No One Go To The Moon

by Margaret Miller

Gerry is in his 60s, married for a second time to Clara and father to Rachel who is 30.  He lost his first wife Nuala and 5 year old son Mark in 1985 in a plane crash and has never got over their loss.  His daughter Rachel (by his first marriage) who was a baby at the time of her mother's death was subsequently reared by her maternal grandmother.     After the death of her grandmother Rachel finds an old tape recorder with her mother and brothers' voices recorded on it and is only then she becomes completely aware of the life she had and lost before she even realised she had it.
As father and daughter work through their pain the cosmic distance that has been separating them finally seems to be closing in.
