Overview

Tapped is a heart-warming comedy that explores the importance of connection, fulfilment and (lack of) hope. In Stapleford aka Stabbo, we meet Gavi, Jen and Dawn at an amateur self-help group who all share one commonality; they’re desperate for escapism.

A garage. A flipchart. A pile of Club biscuits. T-shirts that don’t fit. And 3 people who are really stuck. Gavi wants to inspire his community. Which is tricky when everyone would prefer to just stay at home and watch Bake Off. With the help of daily mantras, goal setting and repeatedly listening to Spandau Ballet, he believes he can change their lives for the better.

Tapped is a witty and sensitive portrayal of managing mental health within a family, highlighting the barriers we put up, whilst having those all-important lightbulb moments, like realising Aldi really does sell everything.
