The Sony Award Winning comedy Clare in the Community returns with Sally Phillips as Clare Barker, the social worker who has the right jargon for every problem she comes across, but never a practical solution.
Since the last series, society itself has improved little, so there are still plenty of challenges out there for an involved, caring social worker. Or even Clare.
A control freak, Clare Barker likes nothing better than interfering in other people's lives. And each week we join Clare in her continued struggle to control both her professional and private life. The last series saw Clare's team shaken around and shuffled about. But it is in the nature of hell to be unchanging, and most are present and correct for a further round of frustration, despair, disappointment, team meetings and eleven o'clock cakes at the Sparrowhawk Family Centre.
We find Clare is now Acting Team Leader at the Family Centre as Irene has job swapped. And whilst Irene is in Melbourne the team here are joined by Libby from Australia.
The Sony Judges said: 'A completely engaging narrative, beautifully observed characters and lots of very funny material. A radio sit-com which pleasingly stresses the 'com' rather than the 'sit'. First broadcast May - June 2011. Download and start listening now!
