Short Play, Comedy / 1m, 6f
It is the afternoon gynaecology clinic and an assortment of patien's sit in a grim hospital room. Rita Onions breezes in. Her verve and energy, combined with a complete lack of respect for authority, gradually spreads an infectious, joyous anarchy throughout the patients as she demolishes officious hospital staff and generally sorts out the patients personal problems. Published in Sue Townsend Plays 1 which also contains Bazaar and Rummage, Groping for Words, The Great Celestial Cow and The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged Thirteen and Three Quarters.
