Whose Line Was It, Anyway?
- one act comedy - 5m 6f (flexible with doubling), single set (scripts 3.00 each, performances 22 each)

Authoritative director Grace is trying to pull the play into shape despite the goings on around her, which include collapsing scenery, forgotten lines, a televised football match, the playwright's amorous intentions on one of the leading ladies and frequent interruptions from just about anyone. Originally conceived as an episode of a television sitcom, staging is kept simple. The play avoids amdram "in jokes" in favour of genuinely funny characters and situations which some of the audience and all of the actors are likely to recognise.

Originally written as a pilot episode for a TV sitcom along with the framework for 5 other episodes - still available if any TV execs are reading this!!!
