Half The World Away
What if your imaginary friend never left?It’s 1997. While the rest of the village is in a frenzy and the country is gripped by New Labour/ Diana/ Teletubbies fever, our unlikely hero is spending her summer trapped behind the counter in Keith’s Country Stores. As she retreats into her imagination, creativity and the absurd collide in a tiny corner of a pre-mobile-phone-world.
A nostalgia trip of a comedy, featuring pink shrimps and 90’s hits.
If you’ve ever felt stuck, had a very best friend or lived in the middle of nowhere, this one is for you.
