I’ve just been listening to a play by Kim Newman called Cry Babies that has gone out on Radio 4 Extra.
It is about a couple who want a child, and find a solution in a genetically enhanced daughter called Joy who when they find they are too busy to bring her up have her frozen and brought back to life periodically programmed to obey and not to challenge the status quo.
At 16 she was told don’t worry about your future we have a legacy for you,
We have bought Northampton for you.
She was less than impressed given that her mother was the Queens of Brazil and her father owned most of Europe, but we all have to start somewhere.
It is well worth listening to,
