Tramping The Boards  
             

"Oh to be on the stage again! The roar of the grease paint, the smell of the crowd, a life on the road: Tramping the Boards!"

An old-giffer-actor-type sits in a shopping trolley-cum-wheelchair and blathers on about this-and-that. His estranged son tries to make a connection with him but his father is so wrapped in himself that it is impossible to get through: in fact he hardly even notices him. A tragi-comic look at the relationship between a celebrated father and his nobody son that is at times tragic, and at times comic.

Performed by Mark Down and a puppet.
In a drawing room, by the fire, at your convenience and for you pleasure. Do come and see, do. Say you will.
