               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

God Bless America!

Synopsis

Comedy Play Script: 'God Bless America!' by Geoff Buckingham

Kevin Freckleton, a hen-pecked, sewerage and recycling assistant from Middlesex, has mistakenly entered a lottery for the selection of the next USA President for the year 2060 – and discovers that he has won it! His wife, Britney, is furious with him and they both come under great pressure from a manipulative White House aide, Morton, who is anxious to quickly fill the void left by the mysterious disappearance of the last President. 

Kevin and Britney try everything possible to avoid accepting the Presidency and Morton tries everything possible to clinch the deal, including offering a variety of bribes. 

The conflict is heightened by the brief introduction of Morton's assistant, Claxton, and the mischievous involvement of Brian the Robot. This culminates in Brian intoxicating Kevin to the extent that Kevin surprisingly makes a late decision to accept the Presidency and to do the job on his own terms – much to the discernment of Britney and Morton!
