Since the death of her trawlerman husband many years ago, Margaret has livved with her daughter Rebecca in a small cottage in a coastal town. Rebecca is moving out to live with her boyfriend, so when she meets Milton, an American artist visiting the area to paint the landscape, she invites him to lodge with Margaret during his stay. Margaret has become set in her ways over the years but with patience, humour and cheap wine Milton gradually encourages her to relinquish her control.

We hope you will join in and sing along for a fun evening.
