Somebody Else's Smile,
was originally broadcast on the BBC in 1978, and we have been
exceptionally fortunate to be given permission by the writer, Elizabeth
Kay, to bring this wonderful script back to life. The plot revolves
around the residents of a geriatric home, and the efforts of the staff
to give a good impression to potential philanthropists whilst
simultaneously attempting to rehearse the residents for an in-house
production of "The Wizard of Oz."
Somebody Else's Smile is now ready to listen to here. Meanwhile, a second play is in the course of production, and we hope to be able to bring this to you very shortly.

Turmoil ensues when one student decides to turn his back on
Catholicism, and instead follow the religion of the ancient Aztecs,
convincing several of his classmates to do likewise. The staff are not
convinced that the customs and rituals associated with this belief
system are exactly in keeping with the ethos of the school.
