Mrs. Gerrish's Guesthouse

Mrs. Brenda Gerrish streaks into the stratosphere of 50s' sophistication in the first play of the trilogy set in her seaside B&B!

It is 1958 and 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's Guesthouse is still full and displaying the 'No Vacancies' sign.

Apart from the residential guests like 97-year-old Mrs. Gimlet, whose relatives were rumoured to have caused the great potato famine of 1845, the short-term visitors to Mrs. Gerrish's Guest House include the suave and debonair Mr. Thomas Terry, the intrepid Hurley family from West Bromich who arrive shoe-horned into their motor cycle combination and the Great Mephysto, star of the Winter Gardens 'Summertime Jamboree'.
