Canvas is a razor-sharp comedy which shines an incisive, witty light on middle-class preoccupations with parenting, the environment and mod cons.
Three couples in search of a rural idyll find themselves in adjacent tents in the Welsh countryside thinking they have cracked the problem of being in the wilderness by going “glamping” in Wales, where the large tents come equipped with proper beds and wood-burning stoves. But canvas walls and adjacent tents leave little to the imagination in this entertaining exposé of modern family life.
