The Hop Pickers
A play for radio, by Barry J. Harper.
Set in the 1950’s, a young lad from the Midlands goes to visit some relatives, who are hop picking in Worcestershire.
His first trip on a train. His first time in the countryside. And his first encounter with a girl.
40 years on, and things have changed. Or have they ?
Featuring the voices of Barry J. Harper and Jamie Lee Beacher (who appear in BBC 1 ‘Doctors’ and feature films, ‘Jawbone’ and ‘Kingsman 2’) the play is a story of growing up, in a different time, of warm summer days.
Original music by Fiachra Trench.
