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 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...
