Not A Penny More!

    by Geoff Buckingham


Comedy Play Script: 'Not A Penny More' by Geoff Buckingham

This is the latest of the tales of Botchington, that have proved great fun for cast and audiences alike. And it could be the funniest of the lot!

When the hapless Dottie, Hilda and Myrtle decide to open a charity shop in Botchington-on-sea, to save ageing donkeys, little did they know of the problems that would arise nor that the premises had previously been used as a dubious massage parlour!

When the recently widowed Lady Sprockett donates some of her late husband's railway collection and clothing they discover a note that raises their suspicions that Lady Sprockett is a serial murderer. With the help of the bumbling local police constable they somehow capture her and her accomplice and discover that Lord Sprockett himself is alive and well!

Their financial problems are solved with the discovery that some of the donated train collector’s items are extremely valuable, and our police constable gets his long-awaited promotion.

Further twists are provided when we discover that the ageing Lord Sprockett is now dating Hilda's 18 year old niece and the play ends with the local moral-crusading vicar dumbfounded as he assumes they are running a brothel with his very own wife being the hooker!
