Synopsis

This collection of Peter Barnes' plays comprises three duologues and one three-hander dealing with "the absurdly tragic and the tragically absurd". In "Humour Helps" an actres hamfistedly tries to commit suicide, finally achieving her aim with the unwitting aid of a neighbour. "Waiting for a Bus" has a pair of lovers interrupted in bed by the arrival of the husband - or are they actors rehearsing a new comedy "Waiting for a bus" about a pair of lovers disturbed by the husband's arrival? "Acting Exercise" opens with Rowan, an actor delivering a soliloquy in a rehearsal room. From the shadows emerges a distraught husband demanding the actor give him back his wife. In "Last Things" an elderly couple of thespians awake to find themselves dead. They decide to go on to the next world with their famous husband and wife sketch - to the applause of the heavenly host.
