‘Fickle thing, memory.’ Malcolm discovers how true his words are when he takes his friend Clive to a singles’ evening. Clive, a hospital porter masquerading as a doctor, has just been left by his wife, while Malcolm is a confirmed bachelor and “big in imports” - really a market stall trader. In the deserted hotel bar, to the depressing soundtrack of the next-door ballroom, they meet two recent divorcees; upwardly-mobile Julie and cynical, defiant Liz.

 

Malcolm is determined to break down Liz’s defences while trying to pair off Clive with Julie. But the women have a few tricks of their own, and Malcolm soon finds that life, like the evening, is full of surprises.

A truly fantastic evening's entertainment and better than anything I have seen on television for a long time - Laura Archer, Isle of Thanet Gazette

CASTING

Clive - a thickset, doleful man of about 45 wearing an ill-filling suit. Liz - late 40s, not unnatractive but with a faintly hostile stare that can be disconcerting. Julie - 30s, blonde and bubbly, socially ambitious. Malcolm, late 40s with dark good looks and trendy, expensive clothes.

Good play for amateur groups, liked the dialogue, the characters were believable and the pace moved along.

Fairly amusing but I am looking for something to direct and this didn't grab me enough to wish to.
