FULL-BLOWN (R4, 2102, 28 Nov 03) was a play about AIDS
and its consequences. Roz is 30 years old, middle-class, clean living and
healthy. She is like you or me. But one day she develops a nasty cough
which will not go away. Two weeks later, she is fighting for her life.
The plot sounds dire and depressing; to my surprise, it was anything
but, and showed what a good playwright can do with difficult material.
Make no mistake - AIDS doesn't just affect the promiscuous,
and the sooner people
realise this, the better. It starred Claire Skinner, Charlie Simpson,
Clive Wedderburn, Daniel Ryan, David Holt, David Collings, Dona Croll,
Joanne Good and Ian Masters; music was by Joe Young and the director was Karen
