Keep­ing up ap­pear­ances after 50 years

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

AC­TRESS Josephine Tew­son, best known as the long-suf­fer­ing neigh­bour El­iz­a­beth in Keep­ing Up Ap­pear­ances, will be ap­pear­ing at the Arts Cen­tre in High Wy­combe.

Josephine is best known for her role in the Bri­tish tele­vi­sion se­ries and as Miss Daven­port in Last of the Sum­mer Wine.

She is set to star at the art cen­tre on Fri­day at 7pm.

A reg­u­lar com­edy per­former in sketches fea­tur­ing Ron­nie Cor­bett and Ron­nie Barker on Frost on Sun­day and Hark at Barker in 1970, she later ap­peared in Mostly Monkhouse, a BBC Ra­dio Com­edy pro­gramme with David Ja­son sup­port­ing Bob Monkhouse.

She also ap­peared on the Charlie Drake show, Z Cars and Emer­gency Ward 10 in the 1960s.

Josephine played Edna Hawkins in the first six se­ries of the Bri­tish sit­com Shel­ley. In 1988, she played Jane Travers in the sit­com Clarence, which was writ­ten by Ron­nie Barker and was his last star­ring tele role be­fore his re­tire­ment.

Still Keep­ing Up Ap­pear­ances is a hugely fun and ir­rev­er­ent evening of chat and mem­o­ries of a fifty-year ca­reer with one of Bri­tain’s most loved com­edy ac­tresses; from Frost On Sun­day to the Two Ron­nies, Shel­ley, Keep­ing Up Ap­pear­ances and Last of the Sum­mer Wine.
