A Clandestine Operation

    by Phil Mansell


Drama Play Script: 'A Clandestine Operation' by Phil Mansell


In a room two men are keeping watch on the world outside through a keyhole. Their objective: to observe and infiltrate the mysterious proceedings taking place beyond the door. 

Two things stop them from succeeding – their inability to open the door and the unexpected arrival of a knife-thrower’s assistant. 

With their mission facing failure there follows a desperate bid to shift the blame and avoid the terrible consequences.
