‘Fickle thing, memory.’ Malcolm discovers how true his words are when he takes his friend Clive to a singles’ evening. Clive, a hospital porter masquerading as a doctor, has just been left by his wife, while Malcolm is a confirmed bachelor and “big in imports” - really a market stall trader. In the deserted hotel bar, to the depressing soundtrack of the next-door ballroom, they meet two recent divorcees; upwardly-mobile Julie and cynical, defiant Liz.

 

Malcolm is determined to break down Liz’s defences while trying to pair off Clive with Julie. But the women have a few tricks of their own, and Malcolm soon finds that life, like the evening, is full of surprises.

A truly fantastic evening's entertainment and better than anything I have seen on television for a long time - Laura Archer, Isle of Thanet Gazette

Good play for amateur groups, liked the dialogue, the characters were believable and the pace moved along.

Fairly amusing but I am looking for something to direct and this didn't grab me enough to wish to.
