Keeping Up Appearances

01/03/20 @ 10.30amKeeping Up Appearances

The action is centered around a church hall where social climber, Hyacinth, is showing her new painting “Willows by Moonlight’ in the local art exhibition. At the same time, her long-suffering neighbour Emmet is directing a play for the local amdram company. He is determined to go to any lengths to keep Hyacinth away from the action, and she is equally determined to get a piece of it when she hears the part of Lady Melvern is yet to be cast. Battle commences!
