Mrs
Gerrish's Grotto

The Ministry of Entertainment was formed by two actors, Kate McNab and Joe Hobbs, to produce theatre based on oral histories from the era of the Second World War. They had met in 1997 during Bristol Old Vic’s premier run of Up the Feeder, Down the Mouth which was directed by Andy Hay and written by A.C.H. Smith about Bristol Docks from the stories of the dockers themselves. During the run Joe and Kate persuaded fellow performer Kit Morgan to be musical director for their new venture. more…

As one theatregoer put it,
“If it’s The Ministry of Entertainment you know it will be excellent theatre, great humour and lovely music”.

Written by Joe Hobbs. Starring by Kate McNab & Ross Harvey

Mrs Gerrish prepares herself for a morning of queueing. She goes through her checklist: Ration book? Check. Identity card? Check. Gas Mask? Check. “Is your journey really necessary?” Yes it bloomin’ well is! Clothing coupons? Check. That smoke-damaged dress in the window of Grafton’s Ladies Outfitters on Castle Street was going to be hers at any cost. No ‘make-do-and-mend’ today.

BERYL'S OF MAYFAIR

Mervyn’s going to Kidderminster. Beryl’s off for her monthly trip to the wholesaler in Exeter (or is she?) and there’s only Hattie, the over-zealous new junior, to keep an eye on the salon.  What could possibly go wrong?

“I haven’t laughed so much in years!”

“Hilarious”

“We had tears running down our cheeks!!”

“It was wonderful”
