StyleA two-hander one act comedy with a single theatre setting.
SynopsisAspiring actress Pandora is resting at the moment (a permanent state for her), and has volunteered to run front of house in a small theatre where she encounters Barbara, the regular front of house manager. The show is ‘At Home with Charlotte’, a ghastly historically inaccurate portrayal of Charlotte Bronte. No-one turns up so the lack of audience gives the women plenty of time to explore their likes and prejudices.
