BBC Audio Drama North in collaboration with Belgrade Theatre Coventry present the premiere of Karla Marie Sweet’s audio drama, This Little Relic.

In a community centre in Coventry, a rebellion is rising. With Mr. Sims determined to produce the perfect version of Ira Aldridge’s play The Black Doctor, music loving teenagers Alex and Ajay are preparing for an opening night upset.

Dogged by violent dreams, Mr. Sims knows the community centre itself is at risk of being torn down and, under mounting pressure, decides everything is riding on this performance going well. If it does, it just may prove the community centre is worth saving.

Meanwhile, Ajay’s mother Prabhleen discovers a familiar face is behind the demolition plans, leading her to confront an old secret that will undoubtedly have huge consequences – particularly for her blossoming romance with Mr. Sims…

A story of love, friendship and regeneration.
