Set in the present time, a shy widower attempts to escape from his loneliness by joining his local Amateur Light Operatic Society!
By accident, rather than by design, (in fact by not being able to say “No” to anything be it a request to obtain confidential information from his Company or an offer of illicit sex!) he advances from a one-line part to the Leading Role!
As the Play unfolds, Ayckbourn skilfully draws parallels between John Gay’s “The Beggar’s Opera”, and the day-to-day activities of the Amateur Society Members who are performing it.
Throughout the play the Characters keep us entertained as they bound from one rehearsal to the next and keep us laughing as their real-life dramas seem to be bought to life on the stage more than their actual parts are!
Will the tuneful Musical Director Mr Ames be able to learn all the Score in time?
Will any of the Cast Members ever remember their lines?
Will introverted Lead Role Guy Jones really be able to pull it off?
Will despairing Director Dafydd ap Llewellyn ever get his show off the ground?
This fast-paced play is guaranteed to leave you on an exhausted high!
