WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The lives and loves of Peckham locals will be played out in an omnibus of ten 5 minute episodes. Each episode will be performed by actors from the local community. Somewhere between Peckham High Street and Rye Lane: after an immigration raid at Lashanna's underground hair salon, Ravi encourages her to relocate to the basement beneath Amir's corner shop (unbeknownst to Amir of course). Above ground Ed scouts for a job, though Amir puts him off the scent. Across the way Glenda, Job Centre co-worker Elaine and Joey make a discovery which may force them into a morning commute to Lewisham. While over at the station, Linda loses her cat, but falls for a dapper stranger whose pin-striped garms are new to the Rye.

The lives and loves of Peckham's dearest and greatest unfold in this short, sharp, and heartfelt series. Will Chi-Chi ever finish rude gyal Monica's hair? Will Amir discover the secret salon beneath his feet? Where is Linda's cat Oyster? Only Winnie, the Pub Oracle, knows the answers.
