Meet housemates Ellen, Alexa and Jack. They're broke. They're lonely. They're hungover. And things are about to go from bad to worse . . .
After Ellen wakes to discover the kitchen is flooded, she, Alexa and Jack scramble into the attic to turn off the water.
Cue Ben, Alexa's date, stumbling in, the door slamming, the handle breaking – and all four finding themselves trapped.
While waiting to be rescued they begin to ask themselves where their lives went wrong . . .
As Ellen’s hangover deepens she worries last night’s drunken antics might have got her fired.
Can hapless Jack, the wonky vegetable company’s newest employee, stop discussing crooked carrots long enough to help?
Meanwhile, Alexa wonders whether her date Ben might just be a keeper – if only Ellen would stop giving him strange looks . . .
Will these housemates ever get out of this attic? Is adulthood really just one disaster after another? And will Jack please stop live-tweeting this whole fiasco?
The Lock In is a hilarious story of housemates and hangovers and friendship and dating as Ellen, Alexa, Jack and Ben discover what The Worst morning-after-the-night-before really looks like . . .
