Show Guide: 'Still Up'

Post by: AYS Staff 17 September, 2023

Synopsis: Living on opposite sides of London (Lisa with her 5-year-old daughter, and her partner, Veggie, Danny on his own) these unlikely 30-something friends have forged a unique bond by opening up to one another in the middle of the night. Each episode takes place over the course of one night. Danny and Lisa’s intimate but remote chats continue no matter what’s going on for them in their respective lives.  In an atmosphere of insomnia that veers between hazy and heightened, we explore through them a strange, night-time, limbo world most of us never see because we’re tucked up in bed.
