Singleton Bev has a high-octane career flipping burgers in a van just off the M62. One morning she discovers Andy, the hunk of her dreams, in a storage cupboard wearing her mother like an oxygen mask. She is spurred into action and enrols in the Pen-Pals for Prisoners scheme.
Bev falls head over heels in love with Nige, and is elated when he tells her that upon release, he intends to whisk her away to his English pub in Costa Teguise where she can live out her days as the Tiffany Mitchell of the Canaries. One small issue… She just needs to lend him £15,000 to pay for the top-flight solicitor that will ensure he will definitely make parole this time.
Laura's witty comedy-drama won the 2022 Scratch Night event.
BEV - 20s-30s. Hopeless (desperate?) romantic, down on her luck.
ROSE - 40s-50s. Bev's overpowering mother. A nasty piece of work.
MARSHA - 50s-70s. Bev's nan. Down to earth, wicked sense of humour.
TREV - 20s-30s. Not very bright, but heart is in the right place. A regular.
ANDY - 20s-40s. A hunk who catches everyone's eye.
NIGE - 30s-40s. A schemer. A criminal who's not quite ready to go straight.
