Slim Chance

A great little play from Josef Weinberger written by Peter Gordon. Easy to set, this is an ideal play for the smaller amateur theatre group.

The play is about the local slimming club, who meet once a week in the local village hall, therefore the set can be as elaborate or as simplistic as you or your groups budget allows.
