Actor Stephen McQueen has just landed a dream West End role. Well, that's not quite true - he's going to be is understudying film star (and 12th Sexiest Man in the World) Josh Harper in the brand-new show 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know', but still... Whilst he's waiting for his time to shine, he reflects on his career - one that has spanned everything from (non-speaking) Rent Boy 3 in 'The Bill' to his recent starring role as Sammy in the (low-budget) regional tour of 'Sammy The Squirrel's Seriously Silly Safari'. With this new job Stephen's stage career may be destined for the dizzying heights, but not everything is going quite as well. Stephen's wife left him two years ago, wondering if he'd ever grow up; his daughter wonders when he'll get an actual job; worst of all, he's starting to fall for the leading man's wife.
