He wants to get away from it all. Luckily, she packed most of it.

Globe audiences' favourite married couple is back in this laugh-a-minute, standalone sequel to the smash hit Sexy Laundry. When Henry unexpectedly loses his job, he and Alice are forced to reconsider their dreams for a comfortable retirement. To cut costs, they forego their usual summer cottage for a humble campsite and a copy of Camping for Dummies. As Henry and Alice struggle hilariously with tents, air mattresses, and meals in a bag, they also wrestle with a far greater unknown: a future for which they have no map.

A treat for outdoor lovers and haters both, Henry and Alice: Into the Wild will appeal to anyone who has ever looked up at the stars and asked themselves, “Did I charge my phone?”
