Norbury Theatre, Droitwich
Doris Wallace has everything a tough tabloid columnist could want: a toy boy with a regular supply of Colombian, a pretty personal assistant who might share her libidinous preferences, and the prospect of her own television show. Being sued by an actress for libel is a petty annoyance, but Doris puts her in her place by revealing her ample cleavage as she flirts with the judge and spouts populist bravado. She is ready to celebrate her victory in court when things begin to go wrong: television materials are missing, a pal she double crossed wants revenge, her accountant is about to pull a fast one and those she has defamed in her column tie her to a chair during her show and dish out the kind of humiliation she inflicts on others. This is a hilarious adult play by the Lawrence Olivier Award-winning author Ben Elton.
