Additional Info

Doris Wallace has everything a tough tabloid columnist could want: a toy boy with a regular supply of Colombian, a pretty personal assistant who might share her libidinous preferences, and the prospect of her own television show. Being sued by an actress for libel is a petty annoyance, but Doris puts her in her place by revealing her ample cleavage as she flirts with the judge and spouts populist bravado.

This is a hilarious play by the author of 1998's Lawrence Olivier Award-winning Popcorn.
