The Time Traveller's Mother & Balls

Another Monday and another double bill. Starting the evening is another one act play by the ever prolific, and busy, Eddie Coleman. When he isn't writing plays he's helping direct other people's, which is why we haven't seen him in the Phoenix of late. However, you can't keep a good man down, and that's why he's back on the 20th with the Time Traveller's Mother. I read it back in November, and can't remember a thing about - except that I really liked it. That's commendation enough, no?

Then, for the main event, we have the first episode of a sitcom by new writer Chris Miller. It was originally entitled Sexism in the City, which tells you quite a lot. Lads on the pull, in other words. But it's now been retitled and rewritten to within an inch of its life. Will it work? Can it make that fabled 8.30 BBC1 slot on a Friday evening now that My Family is being consigned to the ash-heap of history ( ITV 3, UKGOLD, Dave, and a DVD remainder store near you )?

Come along on Monday and find out.
