Disruptions of an Impressionable Tea – comedy about making a good impression

$5.50

Patricia Benton, a pretentious church goer is determined to make a good impression on the new Reverend at her church, and has invited him round for tea. Everything must be perfect. Tea must be perfect, not too hot and not too cold. Everyone must be on their  best behaviour. Her husband, Arthur is grilled and prepped for the big day. Of course, little things go wrong. Like visits from unexpected people.  Like her grunting Goth grandson wearing a T shirt that doesn’t inspire Christianity and a neighbour filled with juicy (and extremely innapropriate) gossip. At least the tea should hopefully be good! A comedy about creating a good impression.
