Something Beginning With C

    by Tony Layton


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'
