About the audio plays
The audio plays describe a family going about their weekly activities, and portray the family’s thoughts and feelings around bowel cancer. Throughout the plays the topic of bowel cancer is raised. During each play ‘dad’ expresses how he doesn’t want to do the bowel cancer screening test. However his family; particularly his daughter Talia encourage him to do the test.
The radio plays are a great educational tool. The strong imagery generated through the dialogue paints a picture of what it’s like to discuss bowel cancer within the family unit. The story and dialogue are entertaining, engaging and educational for listeners.
