Starring Michael Smiley (‘Kill List’), Peter Ferdinando (‘Tony’), Reece Shearsmith (‘The League of Gentlemen’), Julian Barratt (‘The Mighty Boosh’), Richard Glover (‘Sightseers’) and Ryan Pope (‘Ideal’), the English Civil War-set ‘A Field in England’ follows a small group of deserters fleeing from a raging battle through an overgrown field. As they are captured by O’Neil, an alchemist, they are forced to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field.

Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descend into a chaos of arguments, fighting and paranoia, and, as it becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold, they slowly become victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
