Comedy by Tony Jones. Edward Quill must write a blockbuster play for the Huntslet Fair.
Hunslet Fair 1851. Edward Quill is tasked to write a play by Mr Samuel Wragg - actor manager at Wragg's Theatrical Pavillion.
Since having a career at Drury Lane, Quill has fallen on hard times and eagerly accepts the commission which he needs to pay his rent.
He does not expect the commission to be quite so prescriptive; the play must contain a ghost, a hero, a heroine, a storm and a dog. Nor yet does he expect the characters he creates to take over his life, or the wife of his landlord to take over his heart.
Produced and Directed by Clive Brill
