Me And Ma Gal

By Des Dillon

Des Dillon's first play for radio is based on his widely-acclaimed novel in which a day in the life of two young boys in the summer of 1970 turns out to be full of adventure.

When eight-year-old Derrick runs into a police station to report that his pal Stephen Gallagher (Gal for short) has been caught by 'Strangler Joe' the police are sceptical.

Even his mother says that he likes to make things up.
