Then he meets upmarket, Hazel Myers and joins the posh drama group in the nearby town in order to romance her.He is unaware that Chrissie McCabe – a cheerful countrywoman, who comes in to help him and his mother – fancies him. By the time Chrissie makes her feelings known to Gabriel, he has already got Hazel’s attention. He and Chrissie decide to try going out together. He tries to let Hazel down gently, but Hazel is not a woman to give up easily.

The show will run from Wednesday, February 14th to Saturday the 17th, at 8pm nightly.
