  The Monday Play Radio 4 FM, 29 May Director Matthew Walters The plot of this drama is relatively straightforward – Phil and Kath (Samuel West, Lucy Tregeer), a young twenty-something couple, move into a new flat and perpetually argue about where to put the furniture, what kind of decoration to use, and how they can best arrange their existences in a small space.   Satirist, comic essayist, novelist, playwright, reporter, columnist, translator, screenwriter, philosopher: all describe Michael Frayn. He is the author of Noises Off, Copenhagen and Democracy.
