AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What do a classical musician and retired country and western singer have in common? Not a lot according to Monica (Georgie Parker) who really just wants Gary, aka Rhinestone Rex (Glenn Hazeldine), to do the job he’s being paid for and renovate her kitchen. She hates his taste in music, his attitudes to women and the plinths he wants to put on her kitchen cabinets. Gary can’t find much about Monica to recommend to anyone but still finds her attractive in a cold, rigid and inflexible kind of way. Can they find a way past all their conflicts towards a harmonious and fulfilling relationship? Or will their differences keep them from making beautiful music together?'
