SHINDIG

This comedy is set in the typing pool of Harrison Hosiery during the build up to and on the day of the office Christmas party. Anticipation amongst the girls varies from Liz’s unbridled enthusiasm to Julia’s unwillingness to attend – she being frightened of the lurid stories about previous parties. The early rather caustic humour gives way to near tragedy when Barbara, discarded by her lover and hiding a pregnancy, tries to take her own life.

Cast: 5 F.

Setting: Office typing pool.
