Summary

Miriam Margolyes leads a comedy spoof version of John Galsworthy's classic 'The Forsyte Saga' novels

Follow the uproarious antics of the Edwardian Fosdyke family as they work their way out of the mining pits of Lancashire to become rulers of a global tripe empire. An empire that the villainous Roger Ditchely will stop at nothing to try and bring down...

A classic tale of struggle, power, personalities, and offal.

Based on Bill Tidy's hugely popular Daily Mirror cartoon strip, this full-cast production is a laugh-out-loud parody of John Galsworthy's classic, 'The Forsyte Saga'.
