Tinniswood: Two Plays for One

Peter Tinniswood

PaperBack (16 Aug 2002)

Includes the plays The Last Obit and On the Whole It's Been Jolly Good

In The Last Obit Millicent has been computerised. After a lifetime's work in the Obituary Department of The Morning Telegraph she has been made redundant. The paper, however, will allow her to go out in style: she can write her last obit in her own hand and with her own fountain pen. But whose obit will it be? She plunders her memories, fantasies and long friendships with the daft and the dead before making her final decision.

In On the Whole it's been Jolly Good Sir Plympton Makepeace backbench Tory MP has been 'booted out' after sixty years of dedicated service in the house. Sixty years of dedication to mediocricity and sexual dalliances. Sir Pympton leads us down memory lane recalling his involvement in all the major events of the century, but his proudest claim is that he 'never did any harm.'
