Number 24 Ulysses Crescent is an elegant three storey mansion overlooking the beautiful Dublin Bay. Converted into luxurious seaview apartments, it's now home to a close-knit group of tenants ...There's former style icon Evelyn, who lives life as vibrantly as ever, not knowing her past is about to catch up with her; enigmatic sculptor Mike, who uses his art as a way to wrestle with his ghosts; cafe-owner Nessa whose gift for reading the Tarot hasn't yet shown her if she'll find love; and Bruce and Stella, recently separated and now co-parenting their toddler from separate flats. Then there's Morah, the caretaker, who keeps a watchful eye on everyone - especially, for reasons only known to herself, the irrepressible Evelyn. When Evelyn's granddaughter Truth, a high-flying London lawyer, arrives for the summer desperate to escape an online hate campaign, the residents of Number 24 are about to discover that the past is never truly over, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. The Houseshare is a spell-binding summer tale of romance, friendship and how some secrets can never stay hidden.
