Skittles aka Love & Sweets

Love & Sweets won Best Scripted Comedy Drama at the BBC Audio Drama Awards.

Skittles is a story about love (and sweets, which are more reliable). This page is mostly about the run at the Edinburgh fringe in 2011. Ongoing news as and when.

@domcavendish (Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph).
