The Garbage Crawler, The Prophetess of York, A Pitman in Atlantis are an enthralling trio of plays set for the radio and the stage, concerning myth, legend and science fiction.In The Garbage Crawler, we find Zachery, who has only ever known his room and the robotic voice that controls his life. He escapes into a sea of rat-infested, foul-smelling garbage through a chute, where he is discovered by a Finder. His destiny and that of the city he comes to come into question as he becomes a Finder himself and looks to liberate the city.Set in York in 1833, The Prophetess of York is 19-year-old Hannah Beedham, a self-professed ‘common sinner’. She experiences a glorious vision of God himself, but the people of York denounce her as a drunk and a witch. However, local man James Sturdy believes her, as do some from all over who pay tribute to the ‘Prophetess’.A Pitman in Atlantis sees John Bell fall from a sea defence wall in Yorkshire and wake up in a foreign hospital, only to find he has landed in Atlantis. He begins working in a silver mine in the underwater city while fellow Englishmen work to try and find a way for John to return to his wife and the world on the surface.
