Lifted (BBC, 2013)

Lifted

“Lifted” is a short, original play by Pete Jordi Wood, broadcast on BBC Radio Three in 2013. The play explores tensions between young carers and frontline mental health workers in the NHS. Chelsee Healey stars as Joanne, a teenage carer struggling to juggle her personal life with her caring responsibilities to her mum. Pete wrote the play from his own experience of being a young carer as a child, and into his teenage years. You can listen to it in full here:
