My script has been selected for the Salisbury Fringe ‘Rough Cuts’ evening in October, where it will be performed ‘script in hand’ – the actors will have rehearsed it but not memorised it.
The Gasman Cometh is a dark comedy, telling the story of Andrew and Frida who meet at a Crematorium. Each is there to bid farewell to their respective late spouse, but Andrew’s wife’s service has been delayed. They recognise each other from a previous meeting… in the hospital morgue, where they discovered their late spouses died during an illicit rendezvous from Carbon Monoxide fumes from a faulty motel gas heater. Andrew is desperate to keep Frida’s presence from his grieving and already scandalised family as Frida is still furious about losing her husband. Can he stop her from making a scene until he can get his family through their service?
