WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Daphne (Beecham) is a flippant, cynical and intelligent 30-something whose daily life of casual work, sex and boozing are useful to help her forget that she’s in actuality stuck in a bit of a rut. Things start to change, however, when an unexpected act of violence pushes her off the edge and she confronts her life choices head on…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Emily Beecham is a star in the making if her stunning lead turn as the titular character in Daphne is anything to go by, with her performance and story arc compared to shows like Fleabag and Girls.

WHEN’S IT OUT?
