Jamesy is a new three part radio drama written by John Casey.
James Malone has reached something of a crossroads in his life, his elderly mother is sick with cancer and his brother Dan is not interested. Jamesy finds himself becoming increasingly unable to juggle the daily grind of the family farm he runs single-handedly, his once routine now spiralling alcoholism and the fact he is alone. His strange mix of social awkwardness and eccentricity are becoming ever more pronounced as he is getting older, he wants to change but feels totally incapable and his sense of isolation grows.
