The world seems a cold place after the death of her father, but things take a strange turn when Tess receives a special birthday present.

Don’t Let Me Down is an exploration of childhood, laughter, and let downs through the eyes of a child and her balloon. Fusing terse comedy, raw honesty and a wry writing style, this is a modern day fairytale where things are not quite as they seem.

A new play by Andy Goddard, starring Ciara Baxendale.

Praise for Wooden Overcoats:

“Raises the bar for podcasting as a whole.” Laugh Out London

“As good, if not better, than any Radio 4 comedy offering. It’s about rival funeral directors and it’s fab.”
Miranda Sawyer, The Observer
