The village drama group has lost all their men. The future looks bleak until a bright, young director, Francesca Delmarco, agrees to help them out.

Francesca’s play is controversial; it concerns a lesbian couple who want to have a baby. When the word gets out, the vicar’s wife, Agatha Frost, attempts to ban the production. However, The Players have their own way of dealing with misguided authority
