Synopsis


A comedy set in a theatrical boarding house in 1935.


Struggling comedian Norman Tate passes his time rehearsing his very average act with Sally, the love-struck daughter of his landlady Alice.


Four stories inter-weave involving Alice and Sally, Norman's best pal Victor (a conjurer), Charlie (a song and dance man), Arthur (an eccentric pianist), Laurence (an actor) and Harold Chance (an impresario).


When Norman's ex-wife speciality act Nellie Price moves into his digs Norman's life changes dramatically.


A tale of humour, heartbreak and eventual redemption which demonstrates that life is indeed full of 'funny turns'.
