chicken soup with barley with samantha spiro and danny webb, by arnold wesker (in the drama on 3 series)

“Sarah Kahn, an East End Jewish mother, is a feisty political fighter and a staunch communist. Battling against the State and her shirking husband she desperately tries to keep her family together.
This landmark state-of-the-nation play is a panoramic drama portraying the age-old battle between realism and idealism.
Chicken Soup with Barley is a Royal Court Theatre production and was directed for the stage in 2011 by Dominic Cooke, and for radio by Simon Godwin, and produced for BBC Radio 3 by Catherine Bailey.”
