Storyline

Encouraged by Taylor, Saffy finishes writing her play, 'Self-Raising Flower', about her oppressive life with Eddy and Patsy, who don't share the rest of the family's enthusiasm to attend the opening night. Indeed, Eddy unsuccessfully tries to get it banned. But she and Patsy cannot resist slipping in at the last minute. The play, in which Patsy is portrayed by a man, is a roaring success, but only because people think it's a comedy. Eddy and Patsy become celebrities, and Saffy gains an admirer: Kasha, the actress who is portraying her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Best Episode of the Season
17 May 2019 | by Kencrogers300See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode the most out of all of season #5. It is funny, and to see Saffy's dramatic play take a turn into comedy was hilarious. I love how going into this episode I thought it would be dull and of course it turned out to be the best of the best!
