This comedy play was originally published by Samuel French and has since been updated and edited. Carol is a not-too-bright presenter on breakfast television and she is facing the axe – a fact that she has learnt through the daily newspapers and not from her bosses at the TV station. She gets little sympathy from her co-workers. Joe, her researcher, is barely on speaking terms with her anyway. When Carol’s agent, David, arrives he confirms that she will soon be out of a job and he doesn’t seem to be able to come up with much as an alternative. So Carol rebels and goes on set looking decidedly unglamorous. But David – ever the opportunist – instantly sees possibilities in her “new look” and starts making phone calls… A wonderful satire on the shallow (and not exactly honest) world of television.
