SIM Ep 205 IWD 2019 #1: Rediscovering Andrea Dunbar

In the first of our series celebrating International Women's Day 2019, Hannah went to meet writer Lisa Holdsworth to talk about her new play Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, based on the life of working class playwright Andrea Dunbar, who died aged 29. They talk Rita, Sue and Bob Too - including that controversial ending - how Andrea's life and work bled into each other, and the barriers working class youngsters face when entering the arts.
