Guests Are Like Fish

Guests are like Fish by Shelagh Stephenson

When ANNA and JIM left London to move to the country, they blithely issued invitations to come up and see us any time to all and sundry.

Unfortunately, most of those who take them at their word are the ones they never in a million years dreamt would turn up, with predictably disastrous results.

Each weekend, over 4 episodes, a different couple pitches up on their doorstep demanding food, more food, wine and roaring fires, when what they really need is prolonged therapy. And each week Anna and Jim swear they'll never do it again...Guests, like fish, tend to go off after three days.
