For the Love of Che written by Jacqui Birnie
A postal delivery goes wrong and Alice finds herself in the police station answering questions that become increasingly weird. Why would an empty Che Guevara metal tin get you into trouble? Why would an online shopping obsession with accompanying credit card bills be questioned so much? As the penny starts to drop and Alice realises that she is unwittingly at the centre of a criminal delivery supply chain how will she wriggle her way out of ending up in jail –and at the same time deal with the credit card bills!
How Did We Do? written by Kathy Hubbard
Tom and Denise work in the dispatch office of a small courier firm somewhere in the north of Scotland. It is May 2020, two months into the global COVID-19pandemic and the company is under relentless pressure to get vital supplies to where they are needed. But the universe -and in particular, the decisions taken bycentral government -is against them at every turn. The piece is dedicated to Martin H, a hero of the pandemic.
What-iffery was the starting point for our new pieces as that has often been the backdrop to living through the pandemic. Our island's life-line services deal with extreme uncertainty and contingency every day which is why Deliver celebrates these sometimes forgotten key workers. (Jacqui Birnie)
It's great to work with Jacqui again. We always end up having outrageous fun, even when the subject matter is grave. I guess we've known each other for too long... (Kathy Hubbard)
