Whipped

by Becky Prestwich This drama looks at the very rarely seen or heard detail of the life of a newly elected young, female MP, with fascinating detail of what it’s really like at Westminster. Meg’s party is in opposition but it’s on the way up, and so is she. But it's an uphill battle. She begins her working life in Westminster: the seat of democracy - with an office, perched between a sink and a clothes rail, in the ladies cloakroom. Newbies have to beg, borrow or steal an office. She has a love/hate relationship with the Chief Whip when her credibility is threatened. Meg - Molly Windsor Amina/mum - Nina Wadia Davey - Reuben Johnson Noah - Jake Ferretti Naomi - Verity Henry Dad/Speaker/PM - Russell Richardson Rory - Stanley Jude Kinsey Production Co-ordinator -Pippa Day Sound - Simon Highfield Political advisor - Dr. Louise Thompson, Senior Lecturer in Politics at University of Manchester Produced and directed by Pauline Harris A BBC Audio Drama North production
