The Great Squanderland Roof : A BBC Radio 4 dramatisation eAudiobook MP3
by Julian Gough
Narrated by Clare Corbett, Dermot Crowley, James Lailey, Rory Keenan, Stephanie Flanders
Jude lives in a henhouse with no roof, in the bankrupt Republic of Squanderland.
Purchased for ten million euro at the height of the credit bubble, his henhouse has been rated the asset in Europe most likely to default.
To solve this small but symbolic problem and restore confidence in the markets, Europe's leaders need a plan.
Sadly, putting a roof on Jude's henhouse quickly escalates out of control.
Soon they are committed to building a roof over the entire country, half a mile above the startled voters...
But what happens when a structure that's too big to fail finally fails?
To the horror of Europe's bankers and politicians, Jude comes up with a dramatic (and rather romantic) solution to the Eurozone crisis...
Starring Rory Keenan as Jude, with Dermot Crowley, James Lailey, Adjoa Andoh, Clare Corbett and Stephanie Flanders.
Written by Julian Gough. Director Di Speirs.
