The Bureau of Lost Things
  An Audio Sitcom / Podcast

  In a quiet corner of every town, down a street nobody cares about, 
  you’ll find a Bureau of Lost Things. Here a dedicated team strives to 
  reunite lost things with their careless owners. One such branch 
  nestles just inside the M25, where no-nonsense overseer Veronica 
  runs a tight ship; at least according to her (Head Office may disagree). 
  Now we follow eager new recruit Will, cynical con-artist Cara and 
  bureau lifer Raymond as, every episode, they grapple haplessly with 
  a fresh batch of things. And Veronica. 

  A slightly surreal audio sitcom, the first series of the Bureau of Lost 
  Things is released in early 2021. All scripts were sourced from 
  regular attendees of the London Comedy Writers group while the show is a Zugzwang Production 
  for LCW, directed by Glenn Cooper, produced and co-written by myself. 

  Bureau of Lost Things stars Michael Keane (Dr Who, The Play That Goes Wrong), Annette Flynn
  (Eastenders, Lost and Found), Nick Ewans (Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days Later) and Grace Morgan
  (Shuffle Play, Sketchley Park) with a host of special guest stars across the series.

  The Bureau of Lost Things is intended to be a comedy listening experience for all ages. However,
  Parental Guidance is recommended for younger children.
