By Kieran Prendiville. A comedy drama set in the no-prisoners world of northern social clubs.

Its protagonist is Les Bone, a plumber who once came within sniffing distance of the big time when his band Nuclear Dump went mega.....without him.

And now, twenty five years down the line, still unlucky in love, single-parent Les has been tossed a second chance. His kids have a boyband (even if one of them is a girl) and they're a boy short for an upcoming tour of south Yorkshire, one of the hardest enclaves in clubland.

The revelation about Sheila's real father threatens to fracture the family. Meanwhile Chris dies a comedy death, and comedian Denny takes full advantage.
