well worth the time to check out
27 July 2004 | by (camborne) – See all my reviews

i only know this as a play, 1st heard on BBC Radio 4 and remains to this day the only play i went out and bought and gave it to people and MADE them listen to it.

this is the first time i've ever heard this subject matter handled in such a unique way.

its a fresh perspective on an old story and told from the child's point of view. it's freshness comes from the way Spoonface is just a ordinary little girl with problems but you need to hear or watch to find out about those problems.

does make you think!
