Basket Case

Nigel Havers, one of our most popular stage and television actors, stars in this stylish new comedy by BAFTA award winning writer, Nick Fisher (Hustle, Holby City) When Miranda and her ex-husband Guy are drawn back together by the ill-health of their elderly pet dog Toby, a fast-paced exchange of accusations begins. Joined in turn by genial vet Martin and long-term family friend James, this rapid-fire foursome mines belly laughs and touching observations in equal measure as the sanctity of family life is torn apart.

Basket Case is a perfectly crafted, quick- witted comedy which rips the lid off a so-called "civilised" modern divorce and reveals the dark and complex emotions that lurk beneath.
