About this show

What happens when you don't play by the rules The year is 1957 and Mabel Keane, agony aunt and well-known columnist, shares her quintessentially English home with four lodgers, Daniel, Binkie, Thomas and the mysterious, Horace Badger. When budding playwright, Edward, turns up at Mabel's door urgently seeking a room to rent, he is blissfully unaware of these extraordinary people who will soon become characters in his own "play". Events take an unexpected turn and Edward finds himself drawn into situations which challenge everything he thought he knew about morality, loyalty and decency.
