Situated in the unlikely environs of a former power station on the banks of the River Thames, Tate Modern is the most visited art museum in the world, and a global landmark.
To celebrate its 10th anniversary in May 2010, BBC Radio 4 has commissioned three writers to respond to Tate Modern, in three distinctive ways.
The first in the series is a monologue performed by Clare Corbett.
She plays Sophie - a young woman working in Tate Modern's Education Department.
Her head is full of facts and figures about the building and its contents, but she has other things on her mind as well: the imminent arrival at Tate Modern of old boyfriend, Liam - who's down from Liverpool for the day.
