Ethel and Bill Brown await the arrival of Violet’s new young man – the posh Trevor who works in fine art — and Ethel has made a splendid tea to impress Trevor. But nothing impresses him so much as the painting of an old horse which Bill truculently shows him when Trevor doesn’t believe the story behind it.

Ethel and Bill Brown await the arrival of Violet’s new young man – the posh Trevor who works in fine art — and Ethel has made a splendid tea to impress Trevor. But nothing impresses him so much as the painting of an old horse which Bill truculently shows him when Trevor doesn’t believe the story behind it. Determined to make a killing, Trevor introduces the Browns to Mrs Miller and Toby, a mother and son with definite attitude and a very nasty pair of bolt cutters. But who’s fooling who? A comedy with a twist for three men and three women.

A delightfully quirky and tightly written one-act play. Easily cast and well drawn characters. This play will keep the audience guessing the outcome of this (at times, fairly dark) comedy. Well worth producing!
