Office Suite

A suite of playlets including "A Visit From Miss Prothero" and "Green Forms", much in the same style as his Talking Heads plays.A Visit from Miss Prothero - Widowed and retired from Warburtons, where he was a mainstay of management systems, Mr Dodsworth is content to potter, chat to Millie, his budgie, and branch out into evening classes in cordon bleu cookery. An unexpected visit from his one time colleague MIss Prothero, determined to fill him in on what's been happening in the old firm - and she doesn't just mean Maureen's baby - shake his world. Yes, the winds of change are blowing through Warburtons. Green Forms - Colleagues Doreen and Doris are comfortably installed in an obscure department in a large corporation, passing time with talk of artificial hips and rubber plants, punctuated with occasional filing and form filling, when a shadow falls over their settled lives - the shadow of Dorothy Binns from Newport Pagnell and the trail of change she leaves in her corporate wake.
