Ruby was conceived grudgingly by Bunty and born while her father, George, was in the Dog and Hare in Doncaster telling a woman in an emerald dress and a D-cup that he wasn't married. Bunty had never wanted to marry George, but he was all that was left. She really wanted to be Vivien Leigh or Celia Johnson, swept off to America by a romantic hero. But here she was, in a flat above the pet shop in a street beneath York Minster, with a growing family and diminishing dreams. Ruby tells the story of The Family, from the end of the 19th century when a travelling photographer catches frail beautiful Alice and her children, like flowers in amber, to the startling, witty, and memorable events of Ruby's own life.Performers Katherine Dow Blyton, Mark Stratton, Julian Kay, Joanne Heywood, Olwen May, Adele Salem, Meriel Scholfield, Stewart Quayle.
