Life of George

A Comedy
by Dave Buchanan published 2002, revised 2008


Suitable for Adult Groups

Price: 4.00

(Previous title Evergreen) George McWilliam, philosopher, wit and raconteur, is in love. The trouble is, he's seventy five years old, while the object of his affections, Rosie, is a mere forty. Is he up to the challenge? Follow George's adventures with his sidekick Willie, in this sequel to Doon The Watter. The play features parodies of classic Marx Brothers and Astaire/Rogers movies.


The setting is the Evergreen Club's May Fayre. Pensioner George McWilliam is a modern-day Billy Liar, fantasising about the people he meets, especially two women, the domineering Miss Cahn and attractive widow Rosie Kean. But when he falls head-over-heels for Rosie, will his dreams be fulfilled?
