SUMMARY

Jim is sixty-eight, stressed and ready to snap.

At what? Anything: noisy neighbours, speeding cars, kids hanging about on the street corners... you name it, he'll moan about it. It's the one thing he's good at. He makes Victor Meldrew look like an amateur.

And doesn't his wife Lucy know it? Stuck at home with him rabbiting on every day, and nowhere to escape to... She's housebound, and every day is starting to blend into every other... until one Halloween, when a rash act changes everything.

Maybe this time Lucy sees an opportunity to alter things for good...

Maybe this time Jim really does have something to be fed up about...

And maybe the moaning coming from the cellar has nothing to do with the rising damp..

Housebound is a comedy for anyone who ever felt frustrated but didn't know what to do once they were.

From the acclaimed writer of Hull Truck hits My Favourite Summer ("Blissfully funny" Daily Telegraph) and Me & Me Dad ("Beautiful and tenderly written" Yorkshire Post)
