It’s 1965 and a pregnant Karen and her two children are moving to a new estate. It looks like the future – but what does the future have in store? Spanning six decades, Karen’s Town takes us from 1960′s London, through the turbulent 1980′s, the dawn of a new millennium and back to the present day.
Karen’s Town by Michelle Bonnard
Written for The Market Estate Project 2010, Karen’s Town follows the life of resident Karen Frost, which runs in strange parallel to the life of the estate itself. A dramatic, funny and touching story that questions the extent to which the place in which we live, influences and moulds the person we become? And what we can do to fight for change?
