/ Back to Life
6 x 30min
Created by and starring Daisy Haggard (Episodes, Uncle) co-written with former Perrier winner Laura Solon, BACK TO LIFE tells the story of Miri Matteson, an ex-con who has just been released from over a decade in prison following a terrible crime. Now aged 37, with no job and no friends, she has no choice but to move back in with her parents.
Miri is desperate to move on, put the past behind her and get back to her life; but in a small town where her crime is the most dramatic thing that has ever happened, will anyone let her?
Starring: Daisy Haggard, Richard Durden, Geraldine James, Jo Martin, Frank Feys, Adeel Akhtar, Jamie Michie, Christine Bottomley, Liam Williams.
The beauty of the script and the performances – which build relationships so delicately and naturally, which modulate so deftly in and out of grief and laughter, and which turn ordinary moments into hilarity and heartbreak without you noticing how they got you there – will take your breath away
