Beside The Seaside

A comedy by Leslie Sands
May 1960
The Little Theatre, Old Royal Marines Camp, Butts Close, Faringdon

The first play in Leslie Sands’ trilogy of seaside capers at the Seaview Guest House. The tyrannical landlady Mrs Austin terrorises her lodgers with her bread and butter pudding, while newly-weds Mr and Mrs Pepper realise that marriage is no honeymoon and Wilf and Ethel Pearson try to prevent their daughter Sally from running off with a local ‘theatrical’ trickster. Chaos abounds in this stormy seaside resort.
