Mrs Gerrish’s Guesthouse
November 18, 2016 @ 7:30 PM
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 finds herself able to display the ‘No Vacancies’ sign.
With ‘Mrs. Gerrish’s Guesthouse’, the MOE’s 4th show, they leave the ration-ridden ‘40’s behind and streak into the stratosphere of 1950’s sophistication. Once again, true stories and personal experiences form the basis of the show, tales from front-line holiday-makers and veteran landladies of that Great British institution the sea side guest house.
Together with the upbeat, optimistic songs of the period the MOE re-create that 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’!
As one theatregoer put it “If it’s The Ministry of Entertainment you know it will be excellent theatre, great humour and lovely music”.
