Synopsis

Terrified of holding the 'worst-ever party', the over-honest and over-obsessive Lance faces his fear when his parents go away for a dirty weekend. He and porn-addicted best mate Henry plan the party, the only problem being that they are each planning different parties. When Steph, Lance's perfect woman, turns up with the man-eating Abby and the man-hating Heather (plus some unexpected gatecrashers) and when Henry's plan kicks in, Lance sees his dreams painfully fall apart as the worst-ever party gets progressively worse. But is there light at the end of a very dark tunnel?

We've seen Trainspotting. We've seen Twin Town. We've seen the gritty social dramas. But set in the definitively middle-class 'Royal Tunbridge Wells Spa Town', We've got the Toaster shows a different Britain from the urban and social decay portrayed in most home-grown pictures. It's a comedy that lovingly skits middle England.

Toaster is as much about what happens before and after a party as what happens during one. The sleep-over. The clean-up. The neighbours. The parents. The myth. The way it can change your life for better and for worse.
