Full Length Play


A feel-good comedy focusing on Josie Botting, a retiring dominatrix, who is having a birthday party but is in no mood to celebrate, her cleaner, obsessive-compulsive Martha, who can't pry herself away from her Mr. Sheen the Chinese Elvis who looks the part but hasn't quite learned the words and Lionel, Josies most satisfied customer, there to make sure everything goes off with a bang! Writer Charlotte Jones is one of Britains hottest young talents. Her wonderful and compelling play is full of quirky characters, including the excruciating lip-quivering routines of songs by the Chinese Elvis. MARTHA, JOSIE AND THE CHINESE ELVIS won the Pearson Television Best Play Award for 1998 and Manchester Evening News Best New Play for 1999. It also contributed to Charlotte Jones winning the Critics Circle Most Promising Playwright Award 1999.
"Charlotte Jones . . . one of our most accomplished and entertaining young playwrights." - FINANCIAL TIMES

"What strikes one is the play's generosity of spirit and belief in human potential . . . confirms that Jones has a great future." - GUARDIAN

This is the funniest play I have read and seen. Why it didn't transfer to the Westend I will never know. I recommended to a female drama student for her final duologues.
