49 Cedar Street

As far as the residents of 49 Cedar Street are concerned, this is one place where the Outside World need not apply.

Laurence and Elliot have been living together for some time now - and it shows. They've settled into a sort of father and son role, with regular game nights and the occasional song and dance routine.

Laurence does his best to look after Elliot and read him bedtime stories, in return Elliot tries to keep his room tidy and always eats his greens before pudding. Their home is a haven of peace and contentment, with comfy sofas, crayon drawings on the fridge and nice homemade biscuits.

That is, until Hannah moves into the spare room. A walking collection of neuroses, emotions and non-stop jabbering about her ex, she crowbars her way into their life and threatens to turn everything upside down with her crazy woman's brain. However, the bond with her dysfunctional new family develops and she gradually lets go of some of her more destructive compulsions.

And so it becomes the three of them against the world, battling side by side through the strange adventures surrounding the house at 49 Cedar Street, in a ludicrous but ultimately lovely world.
