Drowning On Dry Land


Alan Ayckbourn

Directed by: Tom Thistleton

6th, 8th - 13th Oct 2007

The hero, Charlie Conrad, is a loser who fails in everything he attempts, from athletic events to quiz shows. The result is that the public has warmed to his amiable incompetence and he has become a big and prosperous star. But when a young female entertainer arrives to do her clown act at a children’s birthday party, Charlie falls disastrously for her charms and is humiliatingly disgraced, leaving his career in ruins.
