Miscellaneous notes from the author
A one-act comedy with a single composite setting.
Successful businessman Laurence Benson has been rather clumsily kidnapped by Robbie, Fran and Ted, a tough but likeable gang of unfortunate down-and-outs. It transpires that Benson is such an unpleasant individual that neither his wife, nor his son, nor his business partner want him back. How will the kidnappers react to being foiled and what will it mean for Benson? The action takes place in the days running up to 8th April 1967, when the Grand National was run, providing a vital cog in the plot.
