Dark, funny and featuring the music of the Kinks, Under Electric Candlelight is an existential tragicomedy following an unnamed young nurse who is traumatised after dealing with a particularly gruesome death in A&E. He forms a strong bond with a blunt and brutally logical middle-aged woman called ‘Lola’ who struggles to help him find a reason to stay alive.
