Frank Sumatra 

 

Bev and Keith are a nice young couple who like to do their bit for the environment and pay ten quid a month to sponsor an orphan orangutan in Indonesia.  They're also trying hard for a baby but when their orangutan turns up on the doorstep they suddenly find themselves as parents of a large, hairy, unruly teenager. A dark and surreal comedy performed in the style of a live radio play recording.
