The Victorian in the Wall
4x4s, grand design knock-throughs, organic everything.
A work-shy writer discovers a Victorian man living in the wall of his flat. Everyone’s pretty surprised. Adjustments need to be made.
Can the strange visitor unlock his hopeless career? His flagging relationship? A story buried in these walls for over a century? (Doubt it. Maybe. Yes.)
Contains jokes, songs, banging on recycling boxes, a talking fridge…
