The Grocer

February 3rd brings us two episodes of the sitcom The Grocer, by Mark Brown. It's a dark, slyly satirical piece about spies, counterspies, and a lack of trust among the sellers of agricultural produce. Mix Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy with Open All Hours, though more contemporarily told than both. I read it many months ago and thought it very promising indeed. It really didn't need that much work, and it will be interesting to see if, and how much, if at all, it has changed.

7.30 at the Three Stags. Be there.
