JoYOLO Radio Play

Joy loves words and comes from a poor single-mum family. Yolanda loves dance and comes from a middle-class family. The story is set in the fictional City of Baxter (a poor local council) in an unnamed Australian city. The action happens around the local library, community centre, council offices and different characters’ homes.

Themes of corruption, adultery and hypocrisy swim around these two teenage girls who just want to be heard.

Friendly note: this story is a work of fiction and includes some strong language here and there.
