Up In Town
Up In Town is a six-part series of short (10 minute) monologues, featuring Joanna Lumley as the middle-aged, divorced and lonely Madison Blakelock.
Madison Blakelock is delighted to be living her 'new life', since her executive class husband, who works 'up in town', and she parted company 18 years before. And now she has nothing more to do but sit before her mirror, picking over the bones of her past with an optimism and energy dizzyingly at odds with her reality. As the unrecognised failures of her life mount up, the loss of love, friends, money, purpose and her beloved cat, the cracks in her terrifyingly maintained facade begin to show.
First aired in 2002, the series is quite similar to Alan Bennett's Talking Heads series of monologues.
Written, produced and directed by Hugo Blick .
