Alice has been married to Bob for over 40 years.
She started wondering … am I really a victim of abuse, or is it just Bob’s way when he’s had a few pints?
But with encouragement from her neighbour Beryl, she finally finds a way out: a chance to make a fresh start.
Bob’s moved out, she’s moved into a new home, and she’s got the support of the man from the property company that bought their old house, and Beryl.
But are they all that they seem?
Alice … playing age 60s, outwardly meek, but with a strong inner core.

Beryl … playing age, 40/50/60 … mutton dressed as lamb.
Simon … younger, smooth on the outside
