Tell Your Friends:


The price of accidental fame is hashed out in this comedy about a famous bank robber and the clerk who foiled his biggest heist. Ayckbourn’s 1988 play anticipates the popularity - and absurdity - of reality TV.

Rosalind Ayres as Jill Rillington
Jane Carr as Trudy Parks
Kenneth Danziger as Douglas Beechey
Martin Jarvis as Vic Parks
Ian Oglivy as Kenny Collins
Yeardley Smith as Sharon Giffin

Directed by Robert Robinson. Recorded before a live audience in Santa Monica, CA in February, 1994.
