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