Overview, Cast and Creatives
|What chance does Lorna have of a quiet weekend when both daughters and her granddaughter descend on her with their own problems?
She’s spent three decades working for everyone else through the miners’ strikes, local milk schemes and library closures and tomorrow she’s to have a community centre named after her – but her granddaughter thinks her boob job is more important…
On top of that, a BAFTA, impending divorce, redundancy and a very upmarket caravanette force Lorna to reconsider both the past and the future – for everyone.
What’s a woman to do? Accept everything that’s thrown at her, or become a fully paid-up member of the ‘awkward squad’?
BAFTA winner Karin Young's state of the nation comedy takes a sideways look at the challenges faced by modern women of all ages.
