Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge star in this popular BBC Radio 4 series "Ladies of Letters". 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. 'An hilarious double act by Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge' - "Northern Echo". 'Beautifully scripted and perfectly acted' - "Daily Express".
