(3/6) Dear Lopez
Each week, south London writer and comedian Daniel Ruiz Tizon, a man with a financially crippling latte addiction, writes a letter to people and places, loved and lost.
Comprised of six interlinking episodes, The Letter is an elegy for Daniel’s past.
Each instalment sees Daniel interviewed by a mysterious, often different, American talk show host. Gradually, as the weeks unfold, the events that led to Daniel’s life unravelling in a Pimlico hotel in Christmas 2010 all fall into place and the identities of his enigmatic interlocutors are finally revealed.
Daniel writes to his great lifelong friend, reflecting on how his passing in the summer of 2009 irrevocably changed his life, and why he chose not to deal with his loss until it was too late.
