Episode 1

Isy recounts the tale of an unhappily married dinner lady and teacher, who find solace in their workplace friendship. From 2014.

Isy returns to her home town of Matlock and observes the unfolding romance between Eleanor, a dinner lady, and Mr Woodfield, a teacher - both of whom are unhappily married, but find solace in their workplace friendship.

Isy Suttie's Sony Award winning show, recounting a series of love stories affecting people she's known throughout her life, told partly through song.

Sometimes Isy has merely observed other people's love lives; quite often she's intervened, changing the action dramatically - for better or worse. Intertwined within these stories are related real life anecdotes from Isy's own, often disastrous, love life.

With her multi-character and vocal skills, and accompanied by her guitar, Isy creates a hilarious and deeply moving world, sharing with us her lessons in life and love.
