Cora Bissett and Matthew Pidgeon will reprise their roles as Helena and Bob respectively.
It’s Midsummer's weekend in Edinburgh. It’s raining. Two thirtysomethings are sitting in a New Town bar waiting for something to turn up. He's a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city’s underworld and she’s a high powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She’s out of his league and he’s not her type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together. Ever. Ever. Which is why they do.
