By BBC Radio 4

Drama of the Week

Friday, 21 August

Katherine Mansfield’s best-loved short stories fully dramatised in two box-sets. This first instalment contains three surprising love stories. Marriage a la Mode, where Isabel’s new friends come between her and husband William. Something Childish and Very Natural, where Henry and Edna meet and fall in love, just as passionately as they always hoped they might. Bliss, where Bertha’s life is dedicated to happiness, and her will for happiness folds around every experience, until this one. Daughters of the Late Colonel, where Jug and Con's fear of their father’s disapproval continues even after he has died. The Garden Party, where Laura learns, briefly, the awful gap between her class and that of a dead neighbour on the day of her mother’s garden party. Life of Ma Parker, where the cleaner for a Literary Gentleman discovers she has absolutely nowhere to grieve when her grandson dies. Her First Ball, where Leila learns that the joy of a ball, and of being young and free, is short-lived and destined to end. Cast Marriage a la Mode: Hattie Morahan .....
