A SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
Full-Length Play, Comedy
A feel-good comedy focusing on Josie Botting, a retiring
dominatrix, who is having a birthday party but is in no mood to
celebrate, her cleaner, obsessive-compulsive Martha, who can't pry
herself away from her Mr. Sheen the Chinese Elvis who looks the
part but hasn't quite learned the words and Lionel, Josies most
satisfied customer, there to make sure everything goes off with a
bang! Writer Charlotte Jones is one of Britains hottest young
talents. Her wonderful and compelling play is full of quirky
characters, including the excruciating lip-quivering routines of
songs by the Chinese Elvis. MARTHA, JOSIE AND THE CHINESE ELVIS won
the Pearson Television Best Play Award for 1998 and Manchester
Evening News Best New Play for 1999. It also contributed to
Charlotte Jones winning the Critics Circle Most Promising
Playwright Award 1999.
"What strikes one is the play's generosity of spirit and belief in human potential . . . confirms that Jones has a great future." - GUARDIAN
