★★★★ "There’s a terrific warmth and strength to this good-natured, big-hearted British comedy" - The Guardian. 

From the pen of BAFTA award-winner, Jo Brand and starring Sheridan Smith, Mark Addy, and Ella Hunt, THE MORE YOU IGNORE ME is a big-hearted, comedy-drama about an unconventional British family.

Gina (Smith) is a vibrant and loving young mother whose declining mental health separates her from her husband Keith (Addy) and daughter Alice (Hunt).

As she grows up, Alice struggles to connect with her mum but finds common ground with their love for Morrissey. When Alice hatches a plan to bond with Gina, she inadvertently causes chaos that threatens to divide the family forever.

Set to the songs of The Smiths, THE MORE YOU IGNORE ME is a comical, yet sometimes stark insight into life within this quirky and colourful household, and one family’s search for hope and happiness. 

★★★★ - Stuff 
"[Writer Jo Brand] brings an unflinching and utterly honest eye to this deft and entertaining portrait." "warm, often hilarious and perfectly well-drawn"

★★★★ - Mail on Sunday

"An appealing, bittersweetly funny tale - Daily Telegraph
