A comedy by Richard Everett
‘I’ve poured two hundred thousand cups of tea, made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?’
As a clergy wife Grace has spent a lifetime on best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new-found freedom of being able to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. Set in a classic English vicarage garden, the play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit.
“A very English comedy with some real emotion … scratch the surface and you’ll find interesting undercurrents rippling the water is a sure-fire hit… LONDON EVENING STANDARD
“Everett, has come up with that increasingly rare commodity, a boulevard comedy that is both entertaining and affecting…. this is a funny, touching and genuinely thought-provoking comedy.” – Daily Telegraph
