back The Summer Panto - Fri 27th August - Sat 11th September 2010
widowed Farmer Sweetland wants a new wife.
He confides in Miss Araminta Dench his housekeeper, who selflessly
undertakes to help him in his quest for a suitable spouse. One by one,
the eligible and the not so eligible, the young and the not so young,
ladies of Little Silver fall by the wayside as he clumsily endeavours
to woo them. The rural parish ignites in indignation and confusion
while there, on his very doorstep, is a doting and perfect wife. Will
the old codger eventually see the treasure
he is missing?
