Kissing Sid James written by Robert Farquhar
Published by Josef Weinberger Plays
From the publishers:
Eddie’s an aspiring stationery salesman with a flash car and a moustache he adores. Crystal’s a croupier with a bit of a thing for Sean Connery. Together these two would-be lovers spend a wet weekend in a shabby seaside hotel attempting to spark romance. But will opposites attract or should Eddie have stayed at home with his Mum?
“Kissing Sid James has got to be one of the most hilarious plays ever written” – Bolton Evening News
“You know a true comic playwright has arrived when the audience starts laughing before the actors tell the jokes” – The Guardian
