Night I Danced With Cyd Charisse, The

A Comedy
by Nancy McPherson published March 2011

 

Suitable for Adult Groups

Price: 4.00

A comedy for three men and two women set in a garage workshop. "We can relate to and sympathise with the (male)characters ... the female characters make the whole thing gel. I enjoyed reading this script and would recommend it as a festival piece." - Amateur Stage

 

Three mechanics, each at different stages in their life, settle into their usual pattern of work on a typical Friday morning in a garage workshop. Their contrasting characters give rise to much comedy banter, but it soon becomes clear that they are all dealing with loneliness and each has his own individual relationship with the truth. The two women, who visit this male environment, couldn't be more contrasting. They add to the humour but they too have to confront their loneliness. Plus, all five have to face an interview with their unseen boss, Lesley. It's a poignant ending as the group disperses at the end of the morning.
