More About This Title The Square


A comic romp skewering the bored, overprivileged, and vain London bourgeoisie, with plenty of gossip, affairs, and drama

Jane has the perfect life, with a loving husband and a beautiful house. Her dinner parties are legendary and so are the secret rendezvous in hotels with Harriet’s husband, Jay. From Tracey and her "New Money" lottery winnings to eccentric artist Philip and his pornographic portraits, these are just a few of the residents of North London’s most privileged enclave, The Square. To raise money for communal fencing, the Resident’s Association decide to hold a Talent Show, produced by Jane and hosted by celebrity Alan Makin. But when the show goes disastrously awry, Jane’s reputation is shattered and each resident’s private misdemeanours become public, meaning everyone has to learn to live with a less glossy reality than before.
