Lockie's Umbrella By Philip Davison
Brollies can turn into parasols and parasols can turn into brollies. Spring, summer or autumn, the weather in Ireland typically smiles through its tears, so both shade and shelter, light and dark, are called for in tonight's Drama On One, a brief and broken-hearted comedy about early onset dementia. Here's Lockie's Umbrella by Philip Davison, with Barry McGovern as a poor unfortunate fellow who finds he's astray in himself.
