Radio 3 lines up winter drama

By
BBC Radio 3 has unveiled details of its winter drama season.

Headlining the offerings is an adaptation of Douglas Coupland's 1998 novel Girlfriend in a Coma. Set in Vancouver, it follows the story of a teenage girl who falls into a 17 year coma, and details what happens to her friends both during and after that time. It is named after The Smiths' 1987 single.

Hitchhikers' Guide star Martin Freeman is to star in The Picture Man from David Eldridge. In the play, which goes on air in January, he will play a man distraught at the lack of community and civility in society.

Haasan Abdulrazzak's Baghdad Wedding, which won praise for its Lisa Goldman-directed run at the Soho Theatre, also forms part of the lineup.
