David Tennant and Michael Sheen were due to put on a play in the West End before the production was put on hold because of the pandemic. The play’s director, Simon Evans, is worried that his big break is about to pass him by and tries to convince his doubtful actors to carry on rehearsals online.
With rehearsals due to begin, Simon goes missing. Michael and David embrace the opportunity to skive off. Georgia is due to deliver her novel to her agent and asks David to stand in and help with the kids. Michael is caught breaking the law. Inspired by Georgia's writing, David is tempted to start a new endeavour.
An actor who was initially involved in the play, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, comes back to haunt the production. Georgia has sold her novel and tells Anna that she’s due to be a birthing partner for her friend. Michael is blackmailed by his neighbour.
Michael and David are finding it hard to regain each other’s trust, so the show’s producer, Jo, steps in to try and repair the damage. Meanwhile, Michael gets drawn deeper into the situation with his neighbour, while David is nervous about Georgia leaving to help her friend in labour.
Simon brings in an old friend to try to convince David and Michael to put their faith in him. David has managed to stay afloat in Georgia’s absence. Not only has he kept the house in order and the home-schooling ticking over, but he has finished a draft of his screenplay. Michael spies an ambulance next door and worries about his neighbour.
Jo drafts in the voice of experience to get Michael and David in line. Georgia shares David's work without him knowing. Michael seeks resolution on what has happened to his neighbor, and David is pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic response his work receives.
Affable shutdown comedy has profanity, sexual innuendo.
