Two great actors were due to put on a play in the West End before the show was put on hiatus due to the pandemic. The director is worried that his big break is about to pass him by so tries to convince his doubtful cast to carry on online.
With rehearsals due to begin, director Simon goes missing. Michael and David embrace the opportunity to skive off from their duties, but one of them gets caught breaking the law. Georgia is due to deliver her novel to her agent and asks David to stand in and help with the kids.
An actor who was initially involved in the play, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, comes back to haunt the production. Georgia has sold her novel, and tells Anna that she's due to be a birthing partner for her friend. Michael is being blackmailed by his neighbour.
Michael and David are finding it hard to regain each other's trust. The show's producer steps in to try and repair the damage. Meanwhile Michael gets drawn deeper into the situation with his neighbour. David is nervous about Georgia going off to help a friend who's in labour.
Simon brings in an old friend to try to convince David and Michael to put their faith in him. David has managed to stay afloat in Georgia's absence. Not only has he kept the house in order and the home-schooling ticking over, but he's finished a draft of his screenplay. Michael spies an ambulance next door and worries about his neighbour.
The producer drafts in the voice of experience to get Michael and David in line. Georgia has shared David's work without him knowing. Michael seeks resolution on what has happened to his neighbour. David is pleasantly surprised by the enthusiastic response his work receives.
