Miss Elizabeth Mapp, the resident schemer, in Tilling, and woman of great self importance, is anticipating a special guest. Mapp is leasing her beautiful Queen Anne House to Mrs Emmeline Lucas (known to her friends as Lucia) for the summer months. Mapp is only too keen to proudly boast about her new tenant and the town residents are suitably enamoured by the apparently cultured newcomer.Premiere Date: January 25, 2016 | Runtime: 00:54:24
The social rivalries of a small English town and a host of unforgettable characters are brought beautifully and hilariously to life in this brilliant adaptation of author EF Benson's much loved 1930s tales. This bitingly funny comic drama celebrates and lampoons the snobberies and pretensions of small-town life.
