Meet Nancy: 34, single (still), hungover (again), and exhausted by the endless futile set ups foisted upon her by well - meaning but clueless friends. As she travels across London to toast another 10 years of her parent's blissfully happy marriage, 40 year old, freshly - hatched divorcee Jack mistakes her for his 24 year old blind date. In a moment of uncharacteristic optimism (or insanity?), Nancy decides to just go with it... What follows is a chaotic, unconventional, hilarious night neither of them will ever forget.
There will be drinking, there will be home truths, there will be an old classmate with a long - standing crush and stalker tendencies. There will be lost divorce papers, lost hopes, competitive indoor sports and an epic venue - to - venue urban triathlon.
Oh, and the small matter of Jack finding out that Nancy isn't actually his real blind date.
Man Up is a romantic comedy about being yourself... or perhaps not being yourself. It's about taking chances, making decisions and rolling with the consequences.
One night, two people, on a first date like no other.
