When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception, they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter-writing.
Both Irene and Vera are happily widowed and endowed with errant offspring.
They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.
Feisty, naughty and endlessly funny, Ladies of Letters provides a hilarious insight into suburban friendships as they really are! "Quite honestly as I laid the last letter aside I felt a better person for having glimpsed behind the net curtains of Mrs Small's and Mrs Spencer's life." (Sue Townsend). 1 CD. 1 hr 30 mins.
