My Wonderful Day
From one of Britain’s greatest humorists comes a madcap look at our adult world through the eyes of a nine-year old. Winnie Barnstairs, an Anglo-Caribbean girl from south London, has a school assignment to write about her day. By chance, she is spending it with her mother, a house cleaner who works for an unhappily married, minor television celebrity. Instructed to get on with her homework, Winnie sits quietly with her notebook and does just that, observing and recording all the events around her…even as the day turns into an increasingly frenetic domestic farce of marital infidelity, volcanic egos, and comic misunderstandings.
A strikingly good cast.
