Lent Week 8
Rob's being moved from Intensive Care tonight. Shel wants to see him but Alex doesn't. She'd prefer to stay in and make Louis cry. They have to go but the phone rings. It's Janet. She likes leopard print garments and dead Shitzues. Betty is having a turn. She has a grater. And a colander. So they're coming over. With juice. Locked in a house together guerilla warfare ensues, people forget and (fake) leopard print flies. Step into the Cooper family living room for a story about lunacy, happy dinosaurs and loss. A very unoriginal family comedy then. But that's kind of the point.
The Harry Porter Prize was established five years ago to celebrate the contribution to Footlights of the Club’s Senior Archivist, Harry Porter. In past years the award has been judged by Stephen Fry, Bill Oddie, Michael Frayn and Declan Donnellan, and we are pleased to announce that the prize this year will be judged by Mike Newell, the multi-award-winning director of television and screen productions such as 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'.
