A middle-class camping trip and birthday celebration descend into something deranged and debauched in this six-part comedy written, directed by and starring Julia Davis. In a series made for Sky Atlantic, Davis is joined by a top-notch cast of British actors, including Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen), Vicki Pepperdine (Getting On), Elizabeth Berrington (Stella), Jonathan Cake (Doll & Em) and David Bamber (Rome). Hen-pecked Robin (Pemberton) is turning 50 and wife Fiona (Pepperdine) arranges a camping trip on the coast to celebrate, inviting friends and their son Archie. She has all the details and activities planned but doesn't account for recently separated Tom (Rufus Jones, Hunderby), who is currently suffering a major mid-life crisis, turning up with his new girlfriend Fay (Davis). Flaky and flirty, Fay really throws the proverbial cat among the pigeons and the friends are horrified by her hippy behaviour and the dramatic changes in Tom. As she causes the polite atmosphere to descend into something far more awkward, long-standing marital frustrations surface and tensions simmer, along with the camping stove. Starring: Julia Davis (Hunderby), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen)
