THREE, TWO, ONE ..    a play by Bob Fowke
at the Three Tuns Inn
Time  –   4pm – 5pm

Liz is married to someone – but who is it?  Perhaps she’s married to Brian – or is it Graham?  And why did Brian sneak down to the kitchen in the early hours?  And what’s butter got to do with it?  And why is Graham threatening suicide?  Two men and one woman debate the possibilities in this entertaining trial by repartee (‘Somewhere between Pinter and Beckett but without the easy bits.’), Bob Fowke’s encounter with the theatrical, featuring Sue Cooper as Liz, Tim Phillips as Brian and Bob as Graham.
