THE poignant and often hilarious exploits of a group of friends growing up in the same street is brought to life in this new drama series.

Sassy fashion designer, Debbie lives with her gin-swigging, serial internet-dating auntie Pat. Debbie’s outfits are as outrageous and her confidence leads her to believe no man can resist her charms.

Across the road lives Ann, who is convinced that she was a Bohemian poet in a past life. Her on-off relationship with Lee provides her with enough material to keep her poetry flowing. Then there’s Ann’s best friend, Ben who is always on hand to provide a offer a should to cry on.
