Lad & Lass are on the run. They're Northern, working class and in a toxic relationship. Despite having negative effects on each other's mental health they're determined to stay together.

Show details


"This was never going to last, was it?

Running away from our problems.

We ain't Bonnie and fucking Clyde".

Lad and Lass are on the run.

They're squatting in a bedsit on one of Hull's roughest estates and living hand to mouth on a diet of roll-ups, vodka and Cup-a-Soup.

Spiralling towards breaking point, they fight and flirt, dream up stories and drag each other down.

But caged by circumstance and warped by their own toxic relationship, will they ever be able to escape and survive?
