Synopsis


"What's the use of romance if there's no truth in it?”


It is 1936 in a "wee one-eyed" town in Scotland.


Jeannie is a drudge for her mean controlling father, but dreams of a different life.


When she receives a large inheritance, she seizes the opportunity to finally escape to the glamour and sophistication of European travel.


During her stay in Vienna, she encounters Stanley, a washing machine inventor from Yorkshire, and then a real Viennese Count.


But Jeannie is no pushover.


She knows her own mind, she is a stickler for the truth, and she hates scroungers …


A 1930s version of the Cinderella story from a rediscovered female playwright, Jeannie is a charming light romantic comedy, ideal for the Christmas season, and unseen in London since 1940.
