Jack Rosenthal's poignant comedy drama, adapted for radio by Amy Rosenthal, follows two sets of parents as their children try to get into Cambridge University.

It's 1996 and interview day at Cambridge. As well as nerves, hopefuls Pippa from Cheltenham and Neil from Blackburn must also endure the embarrassment of their parents' company. But as the day progresses, it seems it's not the children who are most in need of help...
