The Cockatoo - a radio play by Laura Lethlean

"When writing The Cockatoo, I wanted to explore the notion that each of us, despite our age, ability or past, can find a way to do good in the world. If we can discover something that fits with our soul, we are all able to leave a small part of the world slightly better than we found it." says Laura Lethlean on 'The Cockatoo'.
