Broadway or Bust

In a converted carpet shop storeroom, community theatre company, The Plush Pile Players, are spitting tacks! When resident director Jan trips on a toaster and breaks her ankle, all hopes of staging the Off-Off-Broadway flop, Broadway Glitz - the company's last-ditch attempt to save their theatre - seem impossible. That is until a lifeline comes in the unlikely shape of a bonafide Broadway director, Percy Scott. However, Jan's eccentric ensemble soon learns that their new messiah may not be all he seems. They must unite to save the show and the theatre. It's Broadway... or Bust!

PERCY
I ridiculed the work that you do here, and in doing so I completely missed the point. It's not about staging a theatrical masterpiece, it's about the journey. It's about the people.

A MERRY ROMP!
