Village Hall: The Complete Series 1
Featuring outstanding scripts from celebrated playwright Jack Rosenthal, BAFTA Award nominees Willis Hall and Peter Ransley, Donald Churchill and Randall and Hopkirk star Kenneth Cope, each episode in this Granada anthology series features a story centred on the events taking place in a typical village hall.
Used variously as a polling station, a football team’s changing room and also a venue for its annual dinner, a meeting place for a conflict-ridden writers’ group and even a temporary shelter when a street is evacuated, the hall is the focus point for diverse storylines exploring the personal lives and idiosyncrasies of locals and visitors alike; buried tensions, secret loves and rivalry are all laid bare in this gently humorous portrait of provincial English life. The seven plays in this first series showcase an impressive cast including, among others, Richard Griffiths, Bernard Hill, Michael Angelis, Liz Smith, Bernard Hepton, George Cole, Gwen Taylor and Colin Welland.
