Betty Blue Eyes

Synopsis:
Belts are being tightened and the country's long-suffering citizens are being told by the government that there will be fair shares for all in return for surviving austerity Britain. Meanwhile local officials feather their own nests by taking far more than their own fair share. It is of course 1947, and having won the war Britain seems to have lost the peace, and the country is staggering under the burden of acute rationing, unemployment and the coldest winter for decades. the only bright spark on the horizon is the impending marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip. With a simply marvellous cast of great British actors headed by Sarah Lancashire and Reece Shearsmith, Betty Blue eyes is like no musical you will have ever seen - but she is worth saving up for!
