Wood and Walters stalwart Duncan Preston also appears in all three plays, with turns from Tracey Ullman, George Costigan and stand-up veteran and Bullseye host Jim Bowen.

    HAPPY SINCE I MET YOU: Frances is 28, single and happy, despite ritual interrogations from her family as to why she's not married. Then she meets Jim, and finds she has decisions to make...
