About the Show Less...

Like all compelling stories, this is one that must be told and one that must be heard. Read More >

Lemn Sissay spent the first seventeen years of his life in care and his entire adult life searching for his family. The search revealed the secrets and lies of an incredible past.

Lemn Sissay is a human dynamo with a sharp lyrical line who produces beautiful and arresting writing. He has had five books published over ten years, appeared regularly on BBC’s Grumpy Old Men and Radio 4 and guested on over forty albums. The radio play of Something Dark was commissioned and broadcast by Radio 3 in October 2004 and won the RIMA award for best radio drama in 2005.
