Face Value - House Rules

Television (Full Length) – 1995

Written by Fiona Samuel and produced by Ginette McDonald, Face Value is a series of monologues by three women with very different stories to tell, but who share a quest for inner happiness. In House Rules, the inimitable Davina Whitehouse gives a poignant performance as Miss Judd, a housekeeper of 22 years who is forced to reassess her life and situation after her employer’s death. Propriety at all costs is the rule of the day. House Rules is another example of Samuel’s ability to create memorable and subtly complex female characters.

You can’t expect a good turnout if you live too long – much better to shuffle off the mortal coil before the end of the second act.
– Miss Judd, quoting Mr Davitch
