CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION? by Steve Tolmie

£5.00

An inept quiz team, led by a married couple, Jan and George, meet up for a quiz night in a draughty church hall.  Jan is less concerned with geography and general knowledge than with finding out which one of her friends has let her down by revealing a secret from her past to her daughter.

In between brain-teasers set by the world-weary Mrs Maitland (clumsily aided by her dopey grand-daughter Sally and introduced by the rambling Mr Hamworthy), Jan sets some questions of her own, but as the evening progresses it seems that she is not the only one with a secret.

It’s not long before the team have to face questions more awkward than ‘How many islands make up Japan?’ or ‘Who wrote The Gruffalo?’.  And don’t even ask about the raffle or the picture round…  A full length comedy with quickfire dialogue that will be enjoyed by anyone who has ever argued over which round to play their joker on.
