A Modern Comedy-Drama by Deborah McAndrew
“Sometimes there’s not much difference between a lie and a wish.”
In her Yorkshire council house, no-nonsense Mari is having a clear out before the ‘Big Move’ brought on by cancer. There’s a lifetime of clutter to be sorted, the house needs cleaning from top to bottom, and the squirrels in the loft have to be dealt with before she can bow out. But, as well as memories of holidays in Mablethorpe and day trips to Flamingoland, there’s a big box of family secrets to dust off and unwrap. Will Mari decide to let sleeping dogs lie or will she force them all to wake up and finally face the truth? Homing in on the lives of four women unable to talk about their feelings, this is a big-hearted, bittersweet comedy about mothers, sisters, lies and love.
