STAGE DOOR BLUES by Marc Harris

£3.50

Liz is determined to wait until she has her theatre programme signed. Robert is impatient, and persists in undermining her and Russ, an actor, because of her infatuation with him. Can they overcome their differences and bickering, and is Liz able to hold on to her secret?

A fun script which will make the audience chuckle, with a plot twist half way through.

Description

CHARACTERS
