You and Me Both

1-act comedy (2M, 2F). Running time approx 50 mins

Gareth and Daisy have been invited to stay for free in a holiday cottage – a renovated barn – by the affluent owners, David and Fleur, who live next door.

The trouble is Daisy knows David all too well: she used to be his wife, until he had an

affair with Fleur.

Now they are expected round for dinner and Daisy is beginning to worry what her ex-husband might let slip.

While next door, in David and Fleur's house, they have just received some very worrying news from an unexpected quarter. And so the stage is set for an hilarious comedy of personal relationships. 


DAISY: Pleasant, undemanding and steers clear of controversy whenever possible, but perfectly capable of making her views clear if she wants. 30s-40s

GARETH: Daisy's husband. Normally very placid, part owner of company making solar panels. Believes in green values, doesn't suffer fools gladly. 30s-40s

FLEUR: Perfectly pleasant but pretentious woman who is always keen to impress. She probably has never had to work for a living. 30s-40s

DAVID: Fleur's seemingly long-suffering husband who works in stockbroking. Measures success in money, but basically wants an easy life. 30s-40s
