Penny Ashton, Christchurch’s favourite bonnet fancier, is back! After wowing the World Buskers Festival, the Edinburgh Festival, Colin Mochrie and the Adelaide Festival to name but a few, Penny Ashton is coming home for one last time with world acclaimed sell out smash-hit, Promise and Promiscuity.
“...see Promise and Promiscuity... thank me later.” Colin Mochrie.
Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother’s nerves and Cousin Horatio’s digestions, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright… you know… for a girl. Balls will be attended, crosses will be stitched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight.
