The Moat

In this quirky romantic comedy, set in an exciting, contemporary London and a painfully old-fashioned England, we chart love at first sight for a husband and his wife - though unfortunately not with each other.

Two worlds collide: The hipster world of Hackney with a sprawling, obsessively renovated and restored manor house in West Sussex. Against this contrasting mix, a set of memorable characters soon undergo their own hilarious and dramatic emotional restoration as they find true love in a story that explores the pitfalls of parenting, class, nostalgia, middle-age, marriage, not to mention moats…

Based on the soon to be published novel, The People In The Play by Stephen James Thompson
