Adapted from David Turner's play, Semi-Detached, All The Way Up focuses on the lower-class Midway family and its scheming to climb the social ladder.
After months of anonymous letter-writing to his bosses, Fred Midway has succeeded in his attempts to have his immediate superior at wholesome firm Starlight Assurance sacked, and to move up the corporate tree himself accordingly.
Naturally, he's not about to let his hard-fought ladder-climbing go to ruin, despite the actions of his three children: Avril, who is equally keen for her husband, Nigel, to climb the ladder at his firm; Tom, whose girlfriend is in the club; and Eileen, who is having an affair with a married man!
Fred is not about to let such dalliances show him up in front of his bosses - or the neighbours - however. This scheming social climber has plenty of plans left up his sleeve!
