Summer Amusements

Summer Amusements

by various authors

By arrangement with Samuel French Ltd and Dramatists Play Service Inc.

Three short comic plays by different authors.
There’s a fairy tale with a twist from A.A.Milne (yes, that A.A.Milne) in 'The Ugly Duckling', a lunchtime conversation with a difference between three New York construction workers in 'Mere Mortals' by David Ives, and a return visit to the village of Little Grimley and its lovably terrible am-dram group in 'The Fat Lady Sings in Little Grimley' by David Tristram.
