Show 381: Ethan Frome, 15th August, Gilded Balloon Edinburgh Festival

It’s the Depression and in Louisiana handbag maker Ethan Frome is so obsessed with his alligators that he neglects his wife. When she falls into the arms of Mrs Alabama’s lothario brother, only tragedy can follow. With Ethan on the run, the alligators are set free. And just as he saved them, they in turn will save him.
