Synopsis

Before Robert Shearman wrote for Doctor Who – or wrote books of award-winning short stories – he was best known for his comedies for the stage. His plays trod a fine line between domestic farce and bizarre absurdism, showcasing the lives of ordinary flawed people thrown into impossible and fantastical situations.

Big Finish is proud to present a selection from his best known work: from the macabre Easy Laughter, winner of the Sunday Times Playwriting Award, to his sci-fi comedy Binary Dreamers, winner of a Royal National Theatre prize and Fool to Yourself, directed by Alan Ayckbourn. By turns all seven plays are odd, disturbing, heartbreaking, and very, very funny.

The A4 collector's edition is signed by Robert Shearman and is from a limited run of 300 hand-numbered books. Each story is prefaced with an introduction by the author and an original full page illustration by artist Fraser Geesin, plus cast photos, original production flyers and lots more...
