About the Show Less...

You never forget where you’re from. It’s easy to get stuck somewhere you don’t belong. Read More >

Robert’s a chef, setting up his own place, but he’s not a celebrity– he’s more like one of the misfits, loners and refugees who work for him. It’s his dream and so far it’s working well. One thing’s for certain, he’s not going to rip off the migrant workers he’s been offered. But for how long? His business partner is going cold on him; his mixed-race son wants to leave, and his dad has turned up after twenty-five years away. Why is everyone so restless? What are they looking for? And why doesn’t anyone stick around anymore?

An explosive, timely and funny story of migration and family from Mark Wheatley.
