Mick’s Last Line – Just when you think things couldn’t get worse? Two-act Comedy

$7.00

Mick is a struggling writer whose life has gone down the toilet. This is mostly due to the fact that he is married to a much younger woman called Emma, (a school teacher) who has now left him for an Italian stripper cum insurance salesman who drives a Ferrari. To make matters worse, Mick, distracted by his troubles, falls into a manhole and ends up comatose in a hospital bed. Upon regaining consciousness, he is then given the even worse news that not only is he alone, ditched for a ferrari driving stripper, but that he now has a malignant brain tumour. Naturally, he starts feeling desperately sorry for himself. In fact, he now believes that he had truly hit rock bottom. Who wouldn’t? The last thing he needs is a visit from a Catholic priest, hell-bent on saving his soul before he dies, despite the fact that their views on religion differ enormously. But that’s just what he gets in the form of Father Boyle, who means well, really. The only ray of light is Nurse Ashlin who is a real light in the tunnel of a really, really bad day. But what if his day could get better?

MICK’S LAST LINE – JUST WHEN YOU THINK THINGS COULDN’T GET WORSE? A TWO-ACT COMEDY

Mick is a struggling writer whose life has gone down the toilet. This is mostly due to the fact that he is (sorry, was) married to a much younger woman called Emma, who has now left him for an Italian stripper cum insurance salesman who drives a Ferrari. To make matters worse, Mick, distracted by his troubles, falls into a manhole and ends up comatose in a hospital bed.

Upon regaining consciousness, he is then given the even worse news that not only is he alone, ditched for a ferrari driving stripper, but that he now has a malignant brain tumour. Naturally, he starts feeling desperately sorry for himself. In fact, he now believes that he had truly hit rock bottom. Who wouldn’t? The last thing he needs is a visit from a Catholic priest, hell-bent on saving his soul before he dies, despite the fact that their views on religion differ enormously. But that’s just what he gets in the form of Father Boyle, complete with religious fervour. The only ray of sunshine in his life is Nurse Ashlin who is a real light in the tunnel of a really, really bad day. But what if his day could get better? A comedy about what happens when you think things couldn’t get worse.
