No Monday performances

Less than dedicated to his job as an undertaker’s clerk at Shadrack and Duxbury and bored with his north country family background, 19 year-old Billy Fisher takes refuge in his own invented world – Ambrosia.

For Billy, an energetic imagination makes his life tolerable but well-nigh intolerable for all around him, He dreams of life in the big city as a script-writer for comedian “Danny Boon”, yet in reality, his lies have got him engaged to three different girlfriends.  As he starts lying his way in and out of every situation, producing any explanation and making any promise that will extricate him from his present predicament, he creates ever more tortuous entanglements for the immediate future.

A classic!
