Adapted from the novel by Mrs Gaskell.

Lose yourself in this witty and poignant comedy of early Victorian life in a genteel English country market town. Inhabited largely by women, the community thrives on cooperation and gossip. The domestic peace is constantly threatened by financial disaster, long-lost relatives, imagined burglaries, births and marriages. Made popular by the BBC’s adaptation, the non-stop liveliness of the irresistable characters and their small adventures, absurdities and major tragedies will not only provide endless entertainment but capture your heart.
