Stage Door Johnnies

Press Clippings

The terrific Alex MacQueen excels as one of those fans who lurk outside theatres hoping for an autograph or a glimpse of an actor. MacQueen plays a video shop manager who lies in wait to give (very) critical notes to stage performers. The others are wacky and unbelievable: two women who aren't allowed within 50ft of John Nettles, and a man who's hand-made a ludicrous gift for Suranne Jones. It's written by actors Catherine McCormack and Laura Power, with perhaps a smidgen of contempt.

This slice of theatrical in-jokery, written by actors Catherine McCormack and Laura Power, takes a caustic glance at the hardcore fans who hang around stage doors waiting for their idols. There's a brace of women so stung by John Nettles they're on a restraining order and a Suranne Jones devotee who handcrafts mad gifts.
