Me and My Girl – October 2005

11The Hareford clan are a group of insufferable aristocrats. The family’s precarious financial situation can only be remedied by locating a legitimate heir to the earldom of Hareford.

In due course an heir is found, but, unfortunately for them, he turns out to be the decidedly non-noble Bill Snibson, a swaggering cockney from Lambeth.

The Earl’s will specifically states that the heir must be deemed a fit and proper person by the two very fit and proper executors, Maria, Duchess of Dene, and Sir John Tremayne. A good-hearted woman beneath all her jewellery, the duchess is determined to make the best of the situation by transforming Snibson into a proper gentleman.

To complicate matters further, Snibson is madly in love with a girl he refuses to leave behind, fellow Cockney Sally Smith. The show includes such classics as “The Lambeth Walk”, “Leaning on a Lamp” and of course the title song itself “Me and My Girl”.
