Him And Her

Him And Her, starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani, reveals the hilarious and often shocking truth of what really goes on behind the bedroom doors of today's 20-somethings.

Russell Tovey plays Steve, a laddish, unemployed man with no desire to seek employment, who is surviving on benefits. He has no dreams and no goals and isn't bothered by this; he has no apparent interest in any issues wider than eating, sleeping, drinking and having sex.

Sarah Solemani plays Becky – ladette, unemployed with no desire to seek employment, true to her friends, popular, the first one to hit the dance floor when she goes clubbing with the girls and sarcastic sometimes to the point of meanness. She is able to see straight through Steve, though sometimes completely unable to understand the weird self-obsession of men.

This acutely observed, forensically honest, warts-and-all comedy looks at a working-class couple in their mid-twenties and the minutiae of their relationship. The hub of Him And Her is the couple's unmade bed and their rather-too-lived-in bedsit.
