The first of four comedies written for the many voices of legendary actor June Whitfield that will transmit during the month of June.

It is 1939 and June plays the slightly fading Hollywood star Lana Garfield contracted to Tantamount Pictures run by the notoriously difficult and womanising studio head, Al Seltzer. Miss Garfield is writing her autobiography with the assistance of British ghost writer George Creighton (David Haig) but is shocked when she hears on a radio gossip programme that Al intends to end her contract. George and his ex-pat cronies take time off from their cocktails and cricket matches to collude with Al's ambitious and glamorous assistant Betty Stevens in exacting an appropriate revenge.

Other plays in the series A Month of June are -

Lost and Found (written by Andy Merriman and Alison Joseph. Tx:June 13th) in which June plays retired, eccentric, no-nonsense politician Kate Whittington, who, missing the Westminster limelight has now agreed to appear on TV reality show Lolly in the Loft. Kate forms a bond with researcher Sam (Ella Smith) whose attempts to adopt a child draw painful memories from the past for Kate. Old schoolfriend Virginia (Marcia Warren) attempts to keep Kate under control.

Now You See Me, Now You Don't (written by Andy Merriman and Peter Morfoot. Tx:June 20th) in which June and Barbara Windsor play fellow inmates in a "safe house" for showbiz refugees who have offended the Sorcerer's Circle.

Shangri-La (written by Andy Merriman and Alison Joseph. Tx:June 27th) in which June and Richard Briers star in an unlikely love story set within the rather cramped confines of a Suffolk beach-hut.

Andy Merriman has written the Afternoon drama Tull, the series Mr Finchley Takes the Road (starring Richard Griffiths) and Minor Adjustment (Peter Davidson and Samantha Bond). His Afternoon Drama A Monstrous Vitality features June Whitfield as the indomitable Margaret Rutherford.

Peter Morfoot credits include Coronation Street, Change at Oglethorpe (Peter Davidson and Michael Williams on Radio 4) and TV to Go (Hugh Dennis, Mackenzie Crook, Pauline McLynn - BBC TV).
