Summary

Sally Phillips stars as Clare in this sparkling collection of 13 comic episodes. Clare Barker, the social worker with all the politically correct jargon but none of the practical solutions, returns in these 13 episodes, which includes a special instalment recorded live at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

As if the upheaval of moving offices and embracing hot-desking weren’t enough for Clare and her colleagues at the Sparrowhawk Family Centre, the threat of redundancies hangs over them, as do the horrors of a team-building exercise. Together they must deal with shattering news concerning Ray, whilst on more than one occasion Clare finds herself in hot water at work.

Meanwhile at home the challenges of raising their son puts a terrible strain on Clare and Brian’s marriage, one which even relationship counselling can’t repair. Just how will it all turn out in the end?

Written by Harry Venning and David Ramsden, and with a supporting cast including Alex Lowe, Nina Conti, Richard Lumsden and Liza Tarbuck, the exploits of Clare continue to delight and entertain her legion of fans.

Loved every minute of this!

I have enjoyed EVERY series of CITC so far, this is by far the best. Sally Phillips brings a depth to Clare that helps you to understand why she is the way she is. Loved Nina Conti too, such talent from all of the cast. Excellent comedy writing and a realistic portrayal of the struggle against the system! Can't wait for series 10! :-)

Superb

Clare in the community is one of the funniest radio comedies ever. Brilliantly performed. From series one to nine there isn't a dull moment. I laughed out loud so often it was a tonic
