Roger Benezoscee is the worst boss you've ever had. What could possibly force this obnoxious, egotistical old megalomaniac to change his ways? Nothing short of a Damascene conversion.
Rob Sterling Davies is on the crest of a wave: a celebrated scriptwriter, actor, television personality, the new doyen of Just a Minute, and apparently, Stephen Fry's new best friend. But all isn't quite as it seems, and when Stephen discovers that Rob's BAFTA-winning script was stolen, he undertakes to expose Rob for the fraud he is.
This story is a lighthearted look at the radio drama production process as seen by the members of an amateur dramatics society in a sleepy suburb of Swansea. It can't be difficult to make your own play for radio, can it? And with a LAMDA-trained professional actor at the helm, surely nothing could go wrong. After their attempt at Mike Leigh-inspired improvisation doesn't exactly produce satisfactory results, things start to look up when a visiting celebrity agrees to step in and play the lead role.
