On Monday Next – 2014

A comedy by Philip King
Directed by Pam Valentine

The Drossmouth Repertory Company are holding the second rehearsal of a new play which is due to open next Monday. The proceedings are complicated by an incomplete set and the cast not knowing their lines. The unexpected appearance of the author does not improve the situation, especially when he seems to want to direct too. The bombastic producer wants instant rewrites and constantly rows with a strong willed cast, who themselves are battling with a carpenter who insists in sawing up the stage during rehearsals. The leading man and lady start to squabble furiously and there seems little chance that the play will open. But these are old troupers and the show must go on…
