Set in the lead up to Mischief Night, Yorkshire's own brand of annual chaos, celebrated on November 4th, the night before Bonfire Night, on this evening, be on your guard, because kids across the county will run riot. A variant of the American tradition of Halloween, Mischief Night has altogether more edge - a licence to commit mayhem...
Single mother Tina Crabtree (Kelli Hollis) returns with MISCHIEF NIGHT. Her chaotic life in the Beeston district of Leeds was previously chronicled in filmmaker Penny Woolcock's acclaimed TINA GOES SHOPPING (1999) and TINA TAKES A BREAK (2001).
Tina lives with her three unruly children, Kimberly (Holly Kenny), Tyler (Michael Taylor) and Macauley (Jake Hayward), on one side of the park, while on the other lives the large Khan family, including Immie (Ramon Tikaram), his stroppy sister Sarina (Sarah Byrne) and his naughty brother Asif (Qasim Akhtar) . As the clock ticks down to Mischief Night, the Crabtrees and the Khans are unaware that their worlds are about to collide.
