David Tennant Treat 4 Today for Friday 24th July 2020
David Tennant starred as Leo in this romantic radio play which was based on a book by Austrian novelist Daniel Glattauer.
It was described as 'a thoroughly modern epistolary novel with one difference - its protagonists Emmi Rothner and Leo Leike communicate exclusively by email.
They 'meet' when Emmi mistakenly sends an email to Leo's inbox. A romance ensues that allows them to live out a shared secret life far removed from their day-to-day existences. The story asks to what extent the relationship relies on fantasy and escapism and whether it will survive a real life meeting. The problem is Emmi is married - but does a virtual affair 'count' as adultery? The tale questions whether it's possible to fall in love with someone you've never met - and explores the implications of anonymity in cyberspace.'
