StyleA fascinating one act drama that uses mime and rhyme to take us into the mind of a struggling writer. Contains one mild swearword.
SynopsisThe writer is grappling not only with his writing but also with his personal life as he desperately attempts to strike up a relationship with Janis, a beautiful girl he sees on a bus.
Well paced and gathering speed, the play uses the chorus to reveal the writer's thoughts - sometimes cogent, sometimes chaotic - come to life as the surreal become real.
