Beyond The Pail: A Plotless Play of Puns and Pottiness

by Henry Dawe

To be read by AWL on 11 September 2017

In the early 1960s Alan Bennett, Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller and Dudley Moore took the theatre world by storm with the groundbreaking revue Beyond The Fringe. If AWL can whip up even a gentle breeze with Beyond The Pail, they will be happy. Full to the brim with puns and pottiness, this one-act play is a vehicle for a rat-a-tat-tat exchange of quips and gags between two working thesps who are taking lunch in Londonís Langham Hotel and who interact in goonish fashion with the four other characters.

Summer may be coming to an end but with this amount of deadpun humour the air is still barmy here.
