Slow, Endearing, Great writing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you like a multi-medium adaptation of an endearing comedy with a message to find the good in everyday life.

“This heartwarming and charming musical is concluded with a joyous happy ending...It is slightly rushed ending, which doesn’t pack as much emotion as may have been expected from such a hopeful story. However, this remains an engaging and graceful musical, filled with hope and positivity.”

“This show brims over with a kindness that may be more wish fulfilment than reality – that people’s efforts pay off and hard graft is ultimately rewarded – but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that right now. Soak it up and cheer Mrs Harris along.”
