Andrew Lawrence's sitcom about a man dissatisfied with his life, whose feeble attempts to run away invariably end with him traipsing home defeated.

In this opening episode, Andrew arrives home from work one evening to find the house even more of a mess than usual. An argument with his girlfriend about cleaning escalates and Andrew storms out to find something to eat.

After a soul destroying encounter with the woman in the local shop, who can only recommend frozen turkey dinosaurs for his meal, Andrew joins his work mate, Lennie, for a consolation dinner in the pub.

Later he returns home and is forced to negotiate about a cleaner through the letterbox before he is finally allowed back in.

Starring Andrew Lawrence and Diane Morgan.

With Rosie Cavaliero and Marek Larwood.

Producer: Jane Berthoud

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in October 2015.
