Gary Bell and Carl Banks are a TV sitcom writing partnership. In the rapidly changing world of television, however, not to mention the constant changes of comedy fashion, they are finding that continued success is increasingly hard to find. Sandra Dale is their personal assistant, a highly intelligent and independently-minded woman who has been with the partnership almost since its beginning. The three of them constantly break into routines and gags throughout the course of a day as they struggle to conjure up ideas for their next series. It is left to their agent, Max, to remind them of the harsh realities of life.. This funny, probing and poignant play is an insightful account of the pressures and pleasures of writing and performing from one of Britain's most talented comic writers.
