A riotously funny, sharply observant comedy, packed with acidic detail that women navigating ungrateful families and M&S in an unforgiving world know so well.
Irene Spencer and Vera Small, two suburban women in their sixties battle the big issues of the 21st century, from climate change protest and accidental imprisonment, to handy recipes for tasty petit fours and how to get stains out of slacks. They are best frenemies. Using the long lost artform of letter writing, they freely vent their views on their ungrateful children, how to find love at 60, and, on each other.
Originally written for BBC Radio 4, running for 13 years, Ladies of Letters also became a hugely popular ITV series.
Starring Tessa Peake-Jones (Grantchester, Only Fools and Horses) and Gwyneth Strong (Only Fools and Horses, EastEnders), and directed by Joanna Read.
