Miriam Margolyes, Alison Steadman and Nigel Planer star in Sue Limb's comedy parodying the arty and adulterous adventures of the Bloomsbury Group.
Sue Limb is a British writer and broadcaster. She is the co-author of a biography of the Antarctic explorer Captain Lawrence Oates. Her work includes novels - many of them for young adults - and a sitcom for ITV television and BBC Radio 4, Up the Garden Path. For Radio 4, she has written a number of comedy series: The Wordsmiths at Gorsemere , The Sit Crom, Four Joneses and a Jenkins and Alison and Maud; and also Growing Pains (a documentary about ageing), Hilaire Belloc, and Cities (six programmes of literary anthology). Under the name Dulcie Domum, Limb wrote Bad Housekeeping, a humorous weekly column in The Guardian's Guardian Weekend section between 1988 and 2001. Collections of the columns, a feminist novelist's diaries of a rural idyll gone wrong, were republished in book form. In 2012 she wrote the Radio 4 series Gloomsbury starring Miriam Margoyles and Alison Steadman.
""This has turned into one of the funniest, slyest, most naughtily inventive and brilliantly performed shows on the air. Sue Limb has come up with a parodic reflection of Bloomsbury which bursts out of its frame to become an entire parallel comic world. Miriam Margolyes is magnificent as Vera, writer, chatelaine of Sizzlinghurst, married to Henry (Jonathan Coy) to whom she is devoted while being in love with Ginny (Alison Steadman) who's in love with anyone else. Alas, this is the final episode."" -- GILLIAN REYNOLDS * THE TELEGRAPH * ""Sue Limb's riotous new comedy about the Bloomsbury Group"" * THE INDEPENDENT * ""The entangled love lives and literary follies of the Bloomsbury Group are parodied to perfection in Sue Limb's six-part series..."" * MAIL ON SUNDAY * ""Sue Limb's wicked new Bloomsbury spoof..."" * THE OBSERVER * ""... a gloriously silly show..."" * THE LADY *
