Unite

When working-class Tony falls in love with upper middle-class Imogen, their sons are forced to live under the same roof and behave like the brothers neither of them ever wanted.

Part of the Radio 4 Comedy Playhouse season, Unite is a new sitcom starring Claire Skinner (Outnumbered), Radio 4 favourite Mark Steel (In Town With Mark Steel, The News Quiz), Mark’s son Elliot Steel (Roast Battles, Comedy Central At The Comedy Store) and rapidly rising comedy star Ivo Graham (Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2019, Have I Got News For You)

When Tony (Mark Steel) a working-class, left wing South Londoner, falls in love and moves in with Imogen (Claire Skinner), an upper middle-class property developer, their respective millennial sons Ashley (Elliot Steel), a disenfranchised Croydon 'rude boy', and Gideon (Ivo Graham), Eton and Oxbridge-educated and crypto-currency literate, are forced to live under the same roof and behave like the brothers neither of them ever wanted.

Class, compromise, hope, desolation, love, identity, step-sibling rivalry and Crystal Palace FC are all explored in this fresh comedy.

Characters of the show Unite! You have nothing to lose but your prejudices, formed over a lifetime of living within the British class system'
