THE OBSERVER

Synopsis: 

 

Set in a regional newspaper office somewhere near Oldham, editor George Maskell is snowed under with marital problems, an unhappy Scandinavian boss and a frustratingly absent mobile phone.  Reporter Mike Jolly has problems of his own following the restructure, but could a chance encounter at the cinema win him the story of the decade?

 

BHTC NOTES: This was a green room experience for first time director Jinanne Karkar. The first half of the evening involved Peter Forester introducing a number of monologues from a small number of club members (with slight changes between the Friday & Saturday format marked in yellow on the programme below).

 

Feedback was that the evenings were very much enjoyed by all who attended and congratulations to Jinanne and her cast of Andrew Squires, Greg Sherman & David Peake

 

Our sincere apologies to Paul Mathews and Lazy Bee Scripts for our mistake in originally not correctly identifying their credits for 'The Observer'.
