Rosamund Pike and Hugh Laurie star in poignant and heart-breaking audio drama People Who Knew Me coming to BBC Sounds

The BBC has revealed details for a new drama, People Who Knew Me, coming to BBC Sounds on May 23, then Radio 4 on from June 26. It tells the story of Emily Morris, voiced by Rosamund Pike, who uses 9/11 to fake her own death and run away to start a new life in California as Connie Prynne.

Fourteen years later, Connie Prynne is diagnosed with breast cancer. Now, with her thirteen-year-old daughter Claire by her side, voiced by Isabella Sermon, Connie must confront her past so that her daughter will not be alone if she does not survive. She must decide how to explain her lies, her secrets, her selfish decisions — and ultimately, her ‘widowed’ husband. Everything she thought she had fled from when she pretended to die in New York.

People Who Knew Me is a 10-part series, written and directed by Daniella Isaacs, adapted from the book by Kim Hooper, starring Rosamund Pike (I Care A Lot, Gone Girl), Hugh Laurie (House, The Night Manager), Isabella Sermon (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Kyle Soller (Andor, Poldark), Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter), Daniella Isaacs (Fleabag, Ladhood), and Jessica Darrow (Encanto).

Episode 1  will be available on first BBC Sounds on 23 May, with episode 2 dropping on the 25 May. New episodes will drop twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the entire series will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 from Monday 26 June.
