What if your imaginary friend never left?

It's 1997. While the rest of the village is in a frenzy and the country is gripped by New Labour/Princess Diana/Teletubbies fever, our unlikely hero is spending her summer trapped behind the counter in Keith's Country Stores.

As she retreats into her imagination, creativity and the absurd collide in a tiny corner of a pre-mobile-phone-world.

A warm, funny, quirky show. If you've ever felt stuck, had a very best friend or lived in the middle of nowhere, this one is for you.

Audience Comments:
"Monty Python meets Waiting for Godot."

"Brilliantly bonkers!"

"Like Drop Dead Fred but with Britpop."
