  1. Steve Davies

    A “highly original comedy from a new writer and set, unusually, in a local public library….a library version of Are You Being Served. “How Does an Amazon Warrior Queen run a library well?” The answer is clearly spelt out in this comedy at the same time as enabling the audience to learn about dealing with an influx of pigeons, finding out what goes on behind the massive shelves of books – and indeed the true use of the stapler!” Amateur Stage
