Miscellaneous notes from the author
A play for adults, satirising office life - where the office workers are nursery toys. Single set. Written in one act, but quite long. A cracking pace might get it down to one-act-play festival length. Contains mild swearing.
The nursery toys are mostly happy with their lot in life - only Ragdoll feels unwanted, so it doesn't surprise her when bureaucratic Fairy Crackernuts arrives and announces they're having 'a re-shuffle'. What does surprise her is that Teddy is the who's been made redundant...
