Publisher's Summary

Kate Harper and Lydia Wilson star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Armistead Maupin's classic, groundbreaking novel Tales of the City.

Set in 1976 in San Francisco, Tales of the City is the first of a sequence of novels about the unconventional tenants of 28 Barbary Lane, the domain of the eccentric, marijuana-growing landlady Anna Madrigal.

Mary Ann Singleton, a naive young woman newly-arrived from Cleveland, Ohio, moves into an apartment there and soon becomes friends with other tenants of the building: the hippyish bisexual Mona Ramsey; the strange Norman Neal Williams; and Michael Tolliver, a sweet and personable gay man known to his friends as Mouse.

Beyond the house, lovers and friends guide Mary Ann through her San Franciscan adventures...

Dramatised by Barbara Lavery, this is both a sparkling comedy of manners and a portrait of a free and easy era, with the drug and sex counter-culture in full swing.

    "Felt like a stage production!!!"

    I've been an actor, assistant director, stage manager, production assistant.. in fact , if it had to do with the stage, I've done it. I sat through this & blocked & made sets in my head. I always knew it COULD relate to the stage, I just wondered how. Now I know.
    The only thing that was REALLY missing was Brian Hawkings' storyline. Otherwise I really loved it.
