A SPARKLING ENTERTAINMENT IN PRAISE OF WINE
This delightful anthology is a heady bouquet of sparkling wit, intoxicating music, vintage verse and dry humour in praise of that ever-popular topic - wine! With anecdotes and verse from Dorothy Parker, Wendy Cope, John Keats, Ronnie Barker, William Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde. Plus a scintillating selection of effervescent songs by Lerner & Loewe, Flanders & Swann, Franz Lehár, Sigmund Romberg, Henry Mancini, Cole Porter, Coward and Verdi including:
On the Grapevine stars one of television's favourite comedy actresses, Claire Nielson (above) who will be remembered for her many appearances with The Two Ronnies and in the famous 'Waldorf Salad' episode of Fawlty Towers; plus numerous staring roles in dramas such as The Crow Road, Monarch of the Glen, Holby City, Doctors, Taggart and Pie in the Sky.
Raise your glasses to this light-'hearted celebration of wine, wisdom and song. Cheers!
