Publisher's Summary

The third in a series of four BBC Radio full-cast dramas exploring the disjuncture between the man who was Eric Blair and the writer who was George Orwell. An acclaimed author and political commentator, Orwell is very hard to pin down. He is a complex mass of confusions - an anti-establishment, pro-English, ex-Etonian ex-policeman, and socialist, who was ardently anti-authoritarian.
He was as anti-fascist as he was anti-communist, a former Spanish Civil War soldier who was anti-war but pro the Second World War. This play tells the story of his relationship with his wife and some of the other women in his life.
Written by Jonathan Holloway. With Joseph Millson and Lyndsey Marshal. Produced by Kate McAll.
