DONKEYS\' YEARS - Penelope Keith Denholm Elliott [1979]

Uncut and Digitally Remastered.

Award winning PENELOPE KEITH, an outstanding actress of stage, films and televison, who came to particular prominence in “The Good Life”, stars in one of her most hilariously funny roles yet in ‘DONKEYS’ YEARS’, based on the award winning play by Michael Frayn.

The setting is a college at Oxford University during the summer recess, when a group of former students gather for a reunion. All are now middle-aged or thereabouts, the wildness of youth seemingly long since left behind.

As the Master of the College is away lecturing in Canada, his wife stands in for him and becomes the victim of hectic events, ranging from high comedy to low farce.

The misunderstandings stem from her belief that her old lover is among the guests.

TV adaptation of Michael Frayn's stage play, in which former university graduates return to their old college for a weekend reunion.
