Play Reading (Modern)

In Coward’s ‘Relative Values’ the status quo at the aristocratic Marshwood family home is under threat.  The young Earl of Marshwood has announced his engagement to a Hollywood actress who, it transpires, is also the mean-spirited, selfish and deceitful younger sister of the loyal and much loved ladies maid of the Countess of Marshwood, the Earl’s mother.  If this marriage goes ahead, what hope can there be of keeping things the way they have always been at Marshwood House?  United by their shared interest, those above and below stairs will require all of their collective wit if order is to be preserved!

NB:  Please note that our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 28th June, not the 21st.
