 A local AmDram group are determined to put on a Sci-Fi play, but they are short of men..until a Russian visitor arrives. There is rivalry between two of the female ‘actors’ and the poor Russian is asked to take part. The group leader is bossy and loud and has to try and  manipulate the cast and persuade them that it is worth doing despite all the obstacles. There is little time for rehearsal but the play goes ahead resulting in a shambolic production in which scenery falls apart, lines are lost, script pages go missing and general chaos abounds not to mention a little bit of ‘naughtiness’ behind the scenery.
