Mrs Gerrish's Guesthouse

It is 1958, the summer season at Weston-Super-Mare is drawing to a close and although the charabangs have returned most of the lobster-red holidaymakers back to their Midland homes, Mrs Gerrish finds herself able to display the 'No Vacancies' sign. Short term visitors to her Guesthouse include the suave Mr Thomas Terry, the intrepid Hurley family from West Bromwich who arrive shoe-horned into their motorcycle combination, and the Great Mephysto, star of the Winter Gardens Summertime Jamboree. Peppered with upbeat songs of the period and based on the true stories and personal experiences of frontline holiday makers and veteran landladies, the Ministry of Entertainment recreate the age of innocence when 'We never had it so good', Mrs Gerrish 'Never had it so full' and most British teenagers just 'Never had it'! Previous M of E productions have delighted audiences.
