This production first aired on BBC on 17th June 2021.
A tour de force of writing and acting.
This is the story of a family, like so many, who found a way to survive - together. It is the hilarious and heart-breaking story of a husband and wife who are forced to re-evaluate themselves and their relationship through the reality of lockdown.
Brilliantly captures the borderline madness of the past year.
Written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Stephen Daldry
