Penelope Keith is good enough on her own but to have her saying the 'f' word, getting drunk and attempting to seduce a man she met in the pub gives the whole thing, well, a bit of added and unexpected bite.
Good Grief was adapted by one time Bath resident Keith Waterhouse from his own comic novel of the same name.
If you think it all sounds a touch familiar you'd be correct since Penelope Keith is returning to the play in which she originally starred in a world premiere production back in 1998.
The play examines grief from a widow's point of view, coping with everything from getting rid of the clothes to coming to terms with a world seemingly unable to cater for the needs of single people – widowed or otherwise.
The play has Keith Waterhouse's very particular style of gentle humour which you either like or you don't.
He weaves the story of widowhood around the world of a now long gone Fleet Street with June Pepper being the widow of the editor of a tabloid newspaper who, she discovers had some unexpected secrets in his life.
It's a clever play and a perfect vehicle for one of the country's best loved actresses.
