D.R.A.M. by Stephen Alexander


In the little-known Shropshire village of Muchleymarsh, the local amateur dramatic society (D.R.A.M.) has long been a staple of the community. None of the villagers seem to notice, however, that D.R.A.M. is probably the worst theatrical group in England – or at least the West Midlands. When Kay, the chairwoman’s daughter, is forced to step in and direct their next production, she finds she must battle with difficult egos and a host of quirky characters, and face just as much drama offstage as on.
