Scripted by (and starring) Jo Brand from her novel of the same name, The More You Ignore Me is a funny, evocative story of dysfunctional family life in 1980s rural England. Sheridan Smith is Gina, whose efforts to be a loving mother and wife are undermined by her declining mental health; and her daughter Alice (Ella Hunt) struggles to relate to her. Using the insights gained during Brand’s years as a psychiatric health worker, it’s a poignant and darkly comic drama set to the music of The Smiths and also featuring Mark Addy, Sally Phillips, Sheila Hancock and Ricky Tomlinson.
