BABES IN THE JUNGLE

REG and VERA, throughout their marriage, have enjoyed a love/hate relationship. After one particular row, they both go out – Vera to do some shopping and Reg – well don’t ask! They both fall over and Reg is taken to hospital with a broken hip; whereas Vera is helped home by a young lad, Simon, whom she dubs her “Knight in White Armour”. Whilst Reg’s freewheeeling life style is severely restricted by his injury, Vera’s life brightens considerably and an extinguished flame is re-lit. This is a fast moving, light comedy, runner-up in the Sussex Playwrights’ 2006 competition.

The actor, Paul Moriarty, who adjudicated the competition described the play as “really enjoyable” with “well-realised characters and depicted with much warmth and depth”.
