LAYING THE GHOST

by Simon Williams


 

Margot, the first wife of Sir Leo Buchanan, an elderly actor with a reputation for the ladies, is celebrating her seventieth birthday in a retirement home for actors. She seeks peace and solitude, so when Sir Leo's young mistress calls she is scarcely a welcome visitor. How much worse then when the old actor's current wife comes searching for her errant husband. Add Margot's psychic companion, a Superman kissagaram and a visit from Sir Leo himself and chaos reigns.
The Action is fast and furious in this comedy and laughter is assured as Sir Leo's situation becomes more and more desperate.
