Appiness [15 Minute Drama]


012015071320190505 (BBC7)

Katy Wix stars in Robin Brooks and Jon Canter's zippy, loopy comedy about a woman who hits her 32nd birthday, and decides she has to finally choose between the men in her life.

She has to decide on The One.

Luckily, she’s got a great app on her phone called Appiness, which allows you to switch between men instantaneously - with one swipe of your screen.

On a dinner date, during a run in the park, when out with friends – she can swipe from one boyfriend to another, and compare the experience with each one. It’s a sort of ‘go compare men’. But it’s even better than that, because with this app, you can actually, you know …. touch the men.

This is obviously morally wrong, because basically it’s cheating. And she really ought to make up her mind, and settle down with one of them. But somehow she can’t bring herself to delete Appiness.

Or to put down her phone.

Perhaps she’s a telesexual?

Karl Theobald (Twenty-Twelve, Green Wing), Colin Hoult (Nurse, Derek, Being Human), and Harry Hadden-Paton (In The Loop, Grantchester, No Naughty Bits, Posh) play the men in Lucy's life, and listen out for a special guest appearance by Clive Anderson.
