               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.

Something Beginning With C

    by Tony Layton


     

Synopsis

Drama Play Script: 'Something Beginning With C' by Tony LaytonMike Carter is a 'Jack-the-Lad'. Life is a game of 'beer and skittles', and marriage and its associated responsibilities of fatherhood are not on his agenda

However, life has the habit of throwing up the occasional cruel hand, and one of these is dealt unexpectedly to Mike. On a visit to the Doctor, he is told he has cancer, 'the big C', and although he tries to carry on as he has before, he begins to realise that there is more to life than 'pints of beer and pulling birds'.

Through his adversity Mike faces up to his own mortality. A deeper appreciation of life is awakened in him as he seeks out the one person who can make him happy.

Also available in the anthology 'Dreams And Delusions (Vol 2)' together with 'Digs' and 'Movers'
