Keeping Up Appearances

By Roy Clarke


For this delightful comedy Keeping Up Appearances, the action has moved out of its natural terrain of Hyacinth Bucket’s candlelight suppers at home and into the community centre hall for a play within a play directed for the local amateur dramatic company by her beleaguered neighbour Emmet with the assistance of his nervy sister Liz.


Under no circumstances does Emmet want Hyacinth to join them, but what noises off can be heard? Why, it is the grand entry of Hyacinth – surely she should be too busy preparing to participate in the painting exhibition in the same building. Wrong, of course! Once Hyacinth hears there is part of a lady still to be filled, inevitably she puts herself forward, and not only does she fill it but she tries to take over the director’s role too.
