“You bring me to this kinky place full of nudies, and get all worked up about me swearing!”

spywhoTen-year-old Clossie is having the worst holiday of her life – dragged to a seaside naturist resort by her fun-loving single mother. When Mum starts flirting with a fishmonger called Nick, there’s nothing for it but her to tail them with binoculars to try and unravel the adult mysteries of attraction.

Written by Lucy Ellman.
Directed by Philippa Lowthorpe.

Principal Cast:
Mum: LESLEY NIGHTINGALE; Nick: JAMES LARKIN; Clossie: ISABELLA NIGHTINGALE MARSH.

Reviews:
‘Novelist and screenwriter Lucy Ellman creates a believably cross, sneaky child spy in the house of love, and director Philippa Lowthorpe sets the action moving across ravishingly composed, and believably chilly, British seaside landscapes. Beach huts have never looked so beautiful.’
