Tea in the Afternoon


When Elizabeth, portrayed by the illustrious Tayler Beth Anderson, discovers that her grandmother has died and left the estate to a ‘mystery’ aunt named ‘Bes’ she is hurt. She locates Bes who comes alive because of a spunky and heartwarming Alice Spvvak whose character attempts to make sense of their increasingly confusing situation.

Tea In The Afternoon unfolds into a story about fantasy, money, misunderstanding, and above all, truth-seeking. But if you have ever cared for an aging loved one then you know that just because it’s true one minute does not mean it will be in the next, especially for the caregiver.
