From the publishers:

Two one act plays.

LOST – It’s the first day of Scarborough’s summer season and Tom and Chelsea have holiday jobs at the Court Hotel. They love their work – they could watch it all day. Especially guests Len and Betty whose fifty year old marriage has run aground on holiday. So when the septuagenarian Palm Court Boys band are delayed, Tom and Chelsea must fill the entertainment slot with their take on Len and Betty’s tribulations.

FOUND – It’s the last night of the summer season, Tom and Chelsea’s holiday jobs are now a distant memory. There’ll be no more nights on the town, beer at the beach huts and surfing on the sea, as he goes back to university and she’s headed for the dole. The summer season at the Court Hotel may have brought them together, but will fate pull them apart in this funny, sharp and biting modern comedy about the haves and chav nots!

“Godber and Thornton have produced a pair of one-act seaside dramas that belong together like a bucket and spade” ~ The Guardian
