Every once in a while a play comes along that reminds you of the glorious summers of your twenties. The long, hot days, that fantastic trip abroad with your mates, the moment when the girl you’ve fancied for years suddenly realises she feels the same way, and you live happily ever after.
This is not that play.
Instead join Dave as he spends a month working alongside a nutcase called Melvin in the summer job from hell whilst trying to save money to take the girl he loves away on holiday with him before she disappears out of his life forever.
Still, at least the weather’s nice for him!
The cast consists of the following
Dave: Angst-ridden, thinnish, late 20s – early 30s: a principal part
Melvin: Coarse, laddish, maybe sturdily built, mid 30s – early 40s: a principal part
Dave’s Dad: Hearty but hen-pecked, 50s: a small part
Bob: Arrogant and annoying: a sex pest: late 40s: a small part
Sarah: The object of Dave’s desires: attractive and vivacious but flighty, manipulative: mid to late 20s: dark hair: a principal part
Dave’s Mum: lively and overly protective of Dave’s wellbeing: mid-late 40s a small part
Angela: Down-to-earth, lively sense of humour: attractive, no nonsense personality: early-late 20s: a small part
Julie: Smartly dressed lass on a night out: 20s – 30s: a very small part
Debs: Melvin’s ex-wife, and his soul mate: a small part
