The Veil


A rehearsed reading of a powerful new radio play set in Barrow and written by members of Furness Multicultural Women's Group and Zosia Wand.


The Veil was written as part of a Big Lottery Reaching Communities Project facilitated by Signal Film and Media.


Anne is 10, she wants to be a journalist and is desperate for a story. Then something happens to her best friend Salma's mum; an attack on West Shore. Who did it? Was there a racial motive?
