Maggie Cole is the self-appointed oracle of Thurlbury, a close-knit town. When a radio journalist interviews Maggie, she gives him far more detail and embellishment about the locals and their personal lives than he was counting on. When the interview is played in full, all the guarded secrets, indiscretions and gossip are broadcast for the whole county to hear, changing life in Thurlbury forever.
When a radio journalist interviews Maggie Cole (Dawn French, The Vicar of Dibley) for a small piece about local life in their small coastal community, she gives him far more detail–and embellishment–about the locals and their personal lives than he was counting on. In the days and weeks following the show’s broadcast, Maggie’s over-zealous chit-chat gets her into serious hot water, as the fallout from her very public gossip-fest disrupts the lives of her fellow residents. Packed full of comedy, intrigue and suspense, The Trouble with Maggie Coleis a warmly humorous yet distinctly cautionary tale about the perils of passing on unfounded gossip.
