Horsing Around

Tom is annoyed that his parents don't trust him - even with his own car. He is determined to prove them wrong and what better way - than taking care of his sister Amy when she comes to London? But first he has to persuade mum and dad to trust him.

Tom persuades his parents that he can be trusted to look after his sister Amy when she comes to London.

Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang Ups is a 30 minute phone call from Tom ringing his parents for his weekly check-in. As the conversation unfolds, Tom takes time out from the phone call to explain the situation, his parent's reactions and relate various anecdotes from the past which illustrate his family's views. And sometimes he just needs to sound-off about the maddening world around him and bemoan everyday annoyances.

A fascinating and hilarious glimpse into Tom Wrigglesworth, his family background and the influences that have shaped his temperament,opinions and hang-ups.

During all this Hang Ups explores class, living away from 'home', trans-generational phenomena, what we inherit from our families and how the past repeats in the present. All in a 30 minute phone call.

'Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang-ups' gets underneath the skin of Tom and the Wrigglesworth family, so sit back and enjoy a bit of totally legal phone hacking.
