Summary
A truly outstanding, genuinely funny play, with a wry twist at the end, first seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round Studio, Scarborough. Frank has erected signs for a commercial letterer for twenty-five years. With trainee Alan, he attempts to spell 'Forshaw's' - the letters collectively forming the play's third 'character'. He is nonplussed when the right letters do not appear and then realization dawns.
