Absolutely brilliant, so funny, do listen if you want to laugh out loud!

So funny, brilliant performances, well written & took me away from the hard life we are living at the moment, during lockdown. I’m going to listen over and over again as I’ve been laughing out loud.
Thank you for that Lucy & all the cast, you made me really happy. I hope to hear more like this soon please Lucy.

Lucy Beaumont is lovely

And Maureen Lipman plays a great role as her mother. A lot of the story is Lucy's character, Sophie, wanting to get away from her

Magnificently funny.

A superbly performed and extremely accurate portrayal of a vibrant Northern family. Drunken Aunty Pam is as Oscar worthy as the rest of the cast. Lucy Beaumont is a writer and actor of true genius. I will listen to this again and again. These characters are my newest friends. I have laughed uncontrollably!
