SynopsisYou can't help liking Pete Bristol, the miracle worker of the title in this breathtakingly fast moving monologue. The resourceful rogue finds himself ticketless at a pop festival - not his fault of course, his mates Badger and Wilbur let him down - and his initiative kicks in as he evades and outwits security man Dave to go from freelance toilet attendant to miracle worker. We not only learn about Pete and his deprived home life with his Nan (the best cheese and pickle doorstep maker in the South West) but are also given a vivid insight into the goings on at pop festivals.
