Description - Johnson Plays by Terry Johnson
A collection of play adaptations by one of Britain's best-selling contemporary playwrights THE GRADUATE: California in the 1960s. Benjamin's got excellent grades, very proud parents and, since he helped Mrs Robinson with her zipper, a fine future behind him...THE LONDON CUCKOLDS: Three beautiful wives, three ludicrous husbands and one ambitious rake are the seductive and comic ingredients of this classic Restoration farce. CLEO, CAMPING, EMANUELLE AND DICK: Filming's not as glamorous as it's cracked up to be. It's a miserable business if your caravan leaks, your co-star's a manic depressive, and those younger women aren't so young anymore."Terry Johnson is that rare creature; a moralist with wit. He writes with responsible gaiety" - Guardian
