The gripping tale of a troubled Buddhist as he struggles with morals and mice in this short radio fiction based rather loosely on a true story.
Lapsed Trappist was produced for the 2007 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: Dollar Storeys.
The Dollar Storeys project invited any/everyone to produce a short audio work inspired by one of three items purchased at a dollar store:
- ceramic mug sporting feisty feminist banter
- 4-pack of wooden mousetraps
- an old-school bicycle bell
Lapsed Trappist was inspired by the mousetraps.
