About The Disappearance of the Lilac Tiger
Set in the city of Nice, this story is a five-part fiction podcast written and directed by Graeme Keeton.
The 38th Colored Lights Performing Arts Festival is coming to Nice. On the beach, a mascot made of plastic, a cultural icon known as the Lilac Tiger. Over the past year it's brought over €17m in donations... but now it meets Michel. Unable to remember anything for more than a couple of hours, Michel steals the tiger to impress Fabienne, a woman he's just met. Stashing the tiger and forgetting all about it, Michel then volunteers to join the search party.
In a race against time, and the festival's prickly director, Madame Deschamps, as well as the shady Man with the Ebony Cane, Michel becomes the unwitting centerpiece in a story about memory, love, loneliness... and the disappearance of the Lilac Tiger.
