Mapp & Lucia

Mapp & Lucia

Based on the novels by E.F. Benson, this bitingly funny comic drama, adapted by Steve Pemberton, celebrates and lampoons the snobberies and pretensions of small-town life. Starring an acclaimed ensemble cast led by Miranda Richardson and Anna Chancellor in the title roles.

Over the course of a 1930s summer the sly, scheming Miss Elizabeth Mapp and the gloriously haughty Mrs Emmeline 'Lucia' Lucas jockey for social supremacy in Tilling. This quaint English town may seem tranquil on the surface, but its eccentric inhabitants exist in a world seething with gossip, faddishness and petty one upmanship...

As Mapp and Lucia go into battle, friends and neighbours rally to the flags. When the smoke clears which of the ladies will have won the dangerously well-mannered fight to be Tilling's finest?
