Men of the World
Published by Samuel French Ltd
2 Male 1 Female
Stick hates his passengers and wishes he was doing the Spanish run instead of Johnny Mac.
Larry is a Mario Lanza fan who's been making trips for as long as anyone can remember and Frank ("don't ask it'll only shock you!") is their female counterpart
These three actors take turns playing an assortment of passengers, from the dotty old complainers to the retired miners seeking excitement too late and on too little money
Escape is on everyone's mind but no-one knows quite what they're escaping from and how to go about it
As Sissy says, it is "better going somewhere when you're seventy-nine than going nowhere"
A touching, often hilarious, bitter-sweet play, full of John Godber's usual clever, perceptive view of "men of the world"
