Mrs Brown advertises for a lodger.

by Ed Harris

Amanda Root stars in a stirring British thriller with a difference.

It's 1944, and after the British defeat at Dunkirk and the Americans' decision to stay out of the war, we find ourselves at home in bomb-strewn suburbia with Mrs Brown. She is very ordinary, her husband died in the invasion, and now she pushes a tea trolley for the Nazi Military Administration in Whitehall.

Mrs Brown wants nothing more than to be a nobody. Determined above all to survive, and to protect her daughter, she never misses an opportunity to go unnoticed. But when she's contacted by the Resistance, will she keep her resolution?

Mrs Brown is given a task.

She will have one week to complete it.

One week to decide.

One week to prepare.

One week to live.

1/5 Mrs Brown advertises for a lodger.

In 2011, the writer Ed Harris won the Writer's Guild Award for Troll, wrote MONGREL ISLAND for Soho Theatre and was nominated for the Prix Europa for his prescient play for BBC Radio 3: The Wall.

Before finding his feet as a playwright, Ed had spent several years working as a binman, occasional stand-up poet and (for one unbearably cold season) as a husky trainer in Lapland. Other plays for theatre include SUGARED GRAPEFRUIT for Old Vic New Vocies, LUCY for Chichester Festival Theatre, NEVER EVER AFTER for Chalkfoot (nominated for the Meyer-Whitworth Prize), THE COW PLAY and TOTAL for Squaremoon. For radio, his plays include TROLL, THE MOMENT YOU FEEL IT, AROMATHERAPY and PORSHIA.
