The action of the play takes place in the living-room of the Hornetts' house in a small inland town.
A special performance before an invited audience from the Strand Theatre, London (by arrangement with Jack Waller and Send Manor Trust Ltd.)
'Hornett' is only her married name - but does Ma live up to it! She means well, but what a dictatorial and rampaging matriarch she is, quite unaware of the damage she may do. She runs the household and Pa takes it all meekly and concentrates on his hobby of breeding ferrets. Now Shirley, Ma's only child, is to be married, and to a sailor. There is in the house, in sister-in-law Ann Wilton, a striking example of what a broken romance can mean, even twenty years after the event. Must Shirley suffer the same fate?

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
