About the show

A silly comedy at a beach about parents and children coping with grief, sex, mistaken identity, ghosts and more sex. More…

A year ago, Matthew's father, Henry, disappeared while "out fishing." In his absence, Matthew has been throwing wild parties every night to distract himself, and it is his brother Mark's job to cover them up. Faced with eviction, Mark tries to dissuade Matthew from throwing his massive bacchanal: a Midsummer Masquerade, furnished with prostitutes from Ivan's Whorium Emporium and thirty cases of champagne. Things get more complicated when Henry returns from sea and is led to believe that a horrible accident occurred while he was away and that his home is now haunted.
