An abridged version of my play What The Matter Is will be broadcast today at 4:30pm.

My hole punch is black. It’s just normal. It’s made of black metal, and the underneath is black rubber so you peel it off when you want to get the holes out. At the moment it’s too full of holes to push the top bit down so it can’t actually work. I rarely change the holes because they get everywhere and they aren’t really meant to be all that good on their own, the point of them is to breed and start a community that’s meant to establish itself among your plants.

What The Matter Is is a 60-minute play of experimental fiction, originally broadcast on Resonance in full on 10 March 2009. Today’s 15-minute abridged version has been produced for the penultimate installment of the weekly antepress art writing series Digestives.
