Kate Harper, Lydia Wilson and Nancy Crane star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the second novel in Armistead Maupin's acclaimed 'Tales of the City' series. In this sequel to Tales of the City, landlady Anna Madrigal reveals her secrets to her second family - the tenants of her house, 28 Barbary Lane. But they are preparing to flee their cosy nest for adventures further afield. Mona Ramsey embarks on a cross-country trip that takes her to a brothel which may hold a secret about her past. Michael 'Mouse' Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton go on a cruise where they meet up with lovers old and new. Brian Hawkins becomes involved with a mysterious woman he spots from his window, and DeDe Halcyon Day gets acquainted with a new friend who helps her discover her true inner feelings. Dramatised by Barbara Lavery, this is both a sparkling comedy of manners and a portrait of a free and easy era.
Armistead Maupin is the author of "Maybe the Moon, The Night Listener," and the bestselling Tales of the City series. A new musical based on the first two Tales novels premiered at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater in the summer of 2011. Maupin lives in Santa Fe with his husband, Christopher Turner.
