Some Blue Horizon (3-7 June 2008)

Liz has a problem – her credit cards bills get delivered personally by a bailiff; Elizabeth has a problem – she wants to stop her PhD and leave college; Dearbhal has a problem – it isn’t easy after all being a single mother, sexy – and an evangelical Christian. But all the problems fade into insignificance beside Brian’s – global warming, drought in Africa, tidal waves and special collapse. But what if getting to grips with his problems just makes everyone else’s immeasurably worse? Some Blue Horizon is a bitter, funny glance at what might happen if someone really took their fears in hand and did something about them.
