You can’t wait to meet her.
El Barco is the newest tapas restaurant in fashionable Walthamstow Village, and it’s Kerry Jackson’s pride and joy.
Wearing her working-class roots as a badge of honour, Kerry navigates the local characters in a bid to make the business a success – without losing herself in the process.
Fay Ripley (Cold Feet) is Kerry in this biting new comedy from April De Angelis (My Brilliant Friend) and directed by Indhu Rubasingham (The Father and the Assassin, The Great Wave).
