In Ireland in the mid-90s, Eddie and Amber decide to ‘stage’ a relationship to stop everyone speculating about their sexuality. Eddie is keen to follow his Dad into the military, while Amber dreams of moving to the liberal hub of London. Sensitively channelling their angst and awkwardness, Dating Amber takes on the teenagers’ struggles with their identity and so much more. A coming-of-age story that will stay with you long after the show is over.
