Haywire - May 2002
Alec Firth is having an affair with his assistant, Liz, and has organized his domestic
life so that they can go to Spain on holiday without making Alec's wife Maggie
remotely suspicious. What could possibly go wrong?
The answer: plenty. On the doorstep, in dizzyingly rapid succession, are: Phoebe, Alec's mother, who has discharged herself from her old people's home; Alec's son Jamie, with a broken ankle; and his daughter Mandy, heavily pregnant and not planning to marry the child's father...
Alec and Liz plan their weekend
Is Maggie suspicious?
Mandy's contractions start
The weekend's looking good
Phoebe returns after discharging
herself from hospital
