Colin Bytheway’s latest drama, THE TWENTY YEAR STRETCH, airs on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday 20th June at 2:15pm. It follows two friends who plan to steal a Van Gogh from a private collection belonging to a Dutch millionaire. Dutch law states that an art thief has legal ownership of stolen private art after 20 years, but fast-forward nineteen years and 364 days later and much has changed. Everything’s up for grabs – power, passion, greed, love, money and dreams. Who will side with whom and what were the true consequences of the twenty year stretch?
