Summary
The eccentric, mysterious, naive, jaded, up-and-coming, down-and-out, adventuresome, and withdrawn boarders in Russian Hill share their dissimilar worlds and worries
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Kate Harper and Lydia Wilson star in this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatization of Armistead Maupin s classic, groundbreaking novel "Tales of the City. "

Set in 1976 in San Francisco, "Tales of the City "is the first of a sequence of novels about the unconventional tenants of 28 Barbary Lane, the domain of the eccentric, marijuana-growing landlady Anna Madrigal.

Mary Ann Singleton, a naive young woman newly arrived from Cleveland, Ohio, moves into an apartment there and soon becomes friends with other tenants of the building: the hippyish bisexual Mona Ramsey; the strange Norman Neal Williams; and Michael Tolliver, a sweet and personable gay man known to his friends as Mouse.

Beyond the house, lovers and friends guide Mary Ann through her San Franciscan adventures

Dramatized by Bryony Lavery, this is both a sparkling comedy of manners and a portrait of a free and easy era, with the drug and sex counter-culture in full swing.

Written by Armistead Maupin / Dramatized by Bryony Lavery / Directed by Susan Roberts / First broadcast by BBC Radio 4 on January 28, 2013
