Beside the Seaside
A light comedy is the source for the october Production of the Lovelace Theatre group

Set in an English seaside resort in the 1950's, the play centres around the guests of the 'Seaview' boarding house and their interactions with each other and the formidable landlady Mrs Austin.

The indomitable Mrs Austin scares her guests with her bread and butter pudding, while just married Mr and Mrs Pepper begin to realise that marriage is difficult and Wilf and Ethel Pearson try to prevent their daughter Sally from running off with a local 'theatrical' conman. Needless to say in the busy boarding house much chaos ensues.
