Orpheus in the Undergrowth (#203Z) Duration: 46:59 STEREO

Laura and Rosemary are brought in by old friend Julia Moore to design a memorial garden, based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Julia is housing Laura's distraught daughter Helena, in a flat overlooking the communal square gardens where Laura and Rosemary are working.

But family matters are put on hold when Jeremy Pearson, another tenant of Julia's, is found dead in the communal garden. Tensions between neighbors and clues about Jeremy's alcoholism surface as the work that Rosemary and Laura carry out on the garden is vandalized nightly.
