Thomas Amo (thomasamo) Bob's Your Auntie A Farce by Thomas Amo

This is a play I wrote in 1997 and it has been produced 4 times since then.

Traditional British farce which centers around Robert Marshall, a man who's life unravels on the morning of the funeral of his auntie Roberta, when he learns she's won the lottery. In order to collect the money, he must pretend to be his aunt. He tries to pull it off with the help of his girlfriend and his best friend, but to be successful they must dodge the taxman, the lottery official, the police, a jealous boyfriend, and the news media, as well as an overly helpful vicar.

I would like to add this was before the film "Waking Ned Devine!"

Cecilia | 167 comments Sounds grand! I put it on my 'to-read' list...along with several hundred other books...but this play looks to be a fun read and I don't have a problem reading plays!
