Comic monologues in which a range of characters find themselves engaging in that most un-British of activities: talking to a stranger.

Each piece is a character study: funny, frank, absurd, moving...

Characters include a sex councillor who loves to draw, a spy who loves to share, a woman who likes to help too much ("I'm a serial helpist"), a frustrated falconer, and a cheater who has to call her cheatee the morning after.

Sally Phillips and Lily Bevan previously performed some of the characters in a theatre show of the same name.
