Today’s the day, right?

That’s what you said

What you prophesized

Today’s the day we finish the job?

We’re all in the business of telling stories

Building narratives

Constructing meaning

To keep ourselves safe, to make sense of the senseless, to explain the unexplainable, or simply just to pass the time

But what happens when the stories we inhabit begin to crumble?

How can we still manufacture hope in a world that’s falling apart?

Idle, They Yammer is an ode to hard graft, a metaphysical conversation between people trapped by the very thing they’ve spent their entire lives building

A new Welsh drama about the importance of stories, both in passing the time and
keeping ourselves safe
