Radio Play: Into Exile

This short radio play is based on Joan Lingard's novel, Into Exile.

Old Belfast Ferry

Joan Lingard, who was brought up and lived in Belfast until the age of 18, has used the conflict-torn capital of Northern Ireland as a setting in three of her most successful novels, The Twelfth Day of July, Across the Barricades, and Into Exile.

The two main characters in Into Exile, Sadie and Kevin, both 17 years old, have fallen in love across the religious divide of their native Belfast. Faced with disapproval from friends and family alike, they decide to go into exile and build their future in England.

Into Exile is set in the period of violence and terrorism known as The Troubles.
