Me & My Girl
16th – 21st October 2020
The Hareford clan, a group of insufferable aristocrats, are clinging to their blue-blooded ways by the tips of their well-manicured fingernails. The family’s precarious financial situation can only be remedied by locating a legitimate heir to the earldom of Hareford. In due course, an heir is found, but unfortunately for the haughty Harefords, he turns out to be the decidedly non-noble Bill Snibson, a swaggering cockney from Lambeth. (It seems the late 13th Earl of Hareford had enjoyed at least one brief period of amorous slumming, secretly wedding woman beneath his station).
The Earl’s will specifically states that the heir must be deemed a fit and proper person by the two very fit and proper executors, Maria, Duchess of Dene and Sir John Tremayne. A good-hearted woman beneath all of her jewellery, the duchess is determined to make the best of the situation by transforming Snibson into a proper gentleman. To complicate matters further, Snibson is madly in love with a girl he refuses to leave behind, fellow cockney Sally Smith.
Will the family accept the cockney into their family and will the course of true love run smoothly for Bill and Sally?
