A play about the dog-eat-dog world of television.
Adam is a fringe dramatist plucked from obscurity by a script editor striving to make her mark in a small independent TV company. Because Adam happens to be in a wheelchair, Sarah proposes he writes the first ever TV sitcom about disability. He accepts the commission with predictably disastrous results.
Simon Block’s play A Place at the Table was first staged at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2000.
‘A blisteringly funny and angry new play’
— Sunday Times
‘A comedy that hits its chosen target with a wounding, and wounded, accuracy’
