The Other Half is a unique collaboration between the leading lights of mystery fiction and country music. An original story by best-selling crime writer Mark Billingham, soundtracked by the powerful and poignant songs of internationally acclaimed Americana duo My Darling Clementine.
Pain, loss, violence. The lifeblood of crime fiction but also the dark seam that runs through the very best country music. With her best years seemingly behind her, a former Las Vegas showgirl works double shifts in a rundown Memphis bar. Alone and estranged from her daughter, Marcia lives life vicariously through her customers and the everyday tragedies of people falling in and out of love.
These are moving tales of grief and heartbreak, lust, murder and domestic horror. Serving beer and burgers as these very different stories unfold, Marcia reflects on her single doomed shot at happiness. Then one day she receives a phone call that changes everything....
Story written and narrated by Mark Billingham; featuring David Morrissey, Graham Parker, Lou Dalgleish, and Florence King. Produced by Michael Weston King & Colin Elliot.
