By Josie Long and Liam Williams
In the not-so-distant future, siblings Josie and Liam live in a city divided by a giant, electrified fence. The haves live on one side, the have-nots on the other.
Josie and Liam live on the non-affluent side of the city and share a room - as in Josie lives in it for twelve hours a day and Liam for the other twelve; it is too small for two people to be in at one time. Then one day they're offered the opportunity to cross the fence and see how the other half lives.
A dystopian comedy about an increasingly divided society written by and starring comedians Josie Long and Liam Williams.
"There's a lovable romantic sensibility here... heartfelt and eccentric." (The Guardian)
