Graham, this is a magnificent piece, full of wonderful twists and surprises, turning the action very neatly indeed! I laughed out loud at Mrs. Digby's knowledge of commerce and the internet--an excellent set up for Margaret's investment sense.

One small typo

Mrs Jones looks around and begins dusting

presumably for Mrs. Digby.

Again, a terrific piece--has it had a perfomance?




P.S. I struggled not to say 'Orton-like' of this piece--but it does seem an apt description, and is most definitely a compliment! I really did enjoy this one enormously!

I'm a bit late getting round to this one, sorry!

I invisage this as being about 20mins, is that correct? The story is witty and in places well researched but as you are writing such a short piece you sometimes lean towards spoon feeding. The play operates around four characters and I must assume that it has been written especially for a group of four, if not is Mrs. Digby necessary?

Overall this is an interesting farce but its too fast paced. I think that you push the story on too quickly and that the play doesnt do credit to the concept, a gypsy living in the shed at the bottom of the garden, which I liked.

Like Tim I am intrigued to know if this was performed at any stage?
