Bouncing back from a seismic break-up, clinging on to her dreams of becoming an actress, and – when she remembers her lessons – finally learning to drive, Marcella is on a mission to change her future for the better.

Roisin Conaty writes and stars as Marcella in this comedy series packed with wry and idiosyncratic observations. This show provides a witty and tender look at navigating your thirties when you’re under-prepared – but somehow always staying afloat.
