Director: Penny Ashton
Cast: Penny Ashton

 

Charmingly accomplished Penny Ashton (Patron's Pick 2013) mashes up Bon Jovi, bonnets and big balls with alacrity! Join Elspeth as she battles literary snobbery, Cousin Horatio and her mother's nerves armed with a blushing countenance, superlative cross-stitching and being quite bright…you know, for a girl. Back by popular demand!
