Community Service airs on BBC Radio 4 Thursday 17 December at 14:15.
Written by Jonny O’Neill and starring Daniel Mays and Leo Bill.
Danny Mays stars as Tommy, a young man in court for the first time and facing consequences that risk putting his whole life in jeopardy.
Tommy has spent his life being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whether it’s problems at school or scrapes with the law, he has a fabled knack of attracting trouble. But this time his predicament is harder to laugh off. Writer Jonny O’Neill’s moving and funny character study follows Tommy over the course of his first day in a London Magistrates’ Court, and sees him face some uncomfortable, but perhaps necessary, truths.
Community Service will be available via BBC iPlayer shortly after broadcast.
