Two rival states. Two sets of mismatched twins. One nutty day at the seaside.
An actor from Lancashire arrives in a Yorkshire coastal town to perform his ‘magnificent’ one man show. Trouble is, there’s no audience – everyone’s booked for a Talent Show across town starring the twin brother he’s never met.
His twin brother owes money all over town, has promised his wife a gold chain and is banking on winning the talent show to avoid getting in trouble with some unsavoury characters…
Will the twins discover each other? Will they learn how they became separated? Will either show go on at all?
