Based on the sensational true stories surrounding the origins of Regency Cheltenham and its famous races, The Jar and Pineapple follows the lives of two women from opposite sides of a divided society. It is 1834 and the wealthy and fashionable flock to Cheltenham for its many pleasures and the healing powers of its spring waters. Actress Maria Mount and reverend’s wife Elizabeth Cole form an unlikely bond as they are thrown into scandalous circumstances surrounding the town’s aristocratic rogue Colonel William Buckley and the passionate and pioneering clergyman Francis Cole.

The Jar and Pineapple - a new luxurious ice cream parlour and sweet shop in the town, becomes a haven for the women who are caught up in the lives and struggles of powerful men. The Regency heroine is re-imagined in this historical tale which witnesses one of Cheltenham’s most dramatic periods when power and protest dominate, but Maria and Elizabeth be the ones who gain control?
