Wednesday 19 September
11.15-11.30pm BBC RADIO 4
Self-Storage is a sitcom about Dave who, recently dismissed from his job and coming to terms with his marriage break-up, books a pod in a self-storage unit, intending to keep his life possessions there. However, when Dave realises that he hasn't arranged somewhere to stay, he is forced to store himself alongside his stuff.
The Storage Garden is run by Ron, a well-cultured security guard. Also a regular customer is Dave's neighbour, Geoff, who serves as a reminder to Dave of what people can become without regular social interaction. Dave's family, of course, attempts to help him out of his situation, with his sister, Rosie, doing somewhat better than his father. As Dave finds himself stuck in the world between real life and packing crates, he begins thinking back to the break-up of his marriage to Sarah.
Dave is played by Reece Shearsmith (best known as one-third of The League Of Gentlemen); security guard Ron by Tom Goodman-Hill; Dave's neighbour, Geoff, by Mark Heap; Dave's sister by Rosie Cavaliero; his father by Philip Jackson; and his wife, Sarah, by Susan Earl. Also appearing in the series are Phil Nichol and Nadia Kamil.
Self-Storage is written by Tom Collinson and Barnaby Power.
