Synopsis

Following the death of his wife, Guy Jones joins Pendon Light Amateur Dramatic Society (PALOS) and is cast in a slight role in The Beggars Opera. Things soon change as he find himself rapidly ascending the amateur theatrical ranks. The problem is Guy is unable to say no to anyone and consequently a number of people assume he has promised some service or other ranging from leaking industrial secrets to offers of love. He has, of course, done none of these things and as he assumes the title role of Macheath on the first night, he is surrounded and shunned by people who believe he has played them or duped them. The action of the main plot skilfully interweaves and mirrors John Gays The Beggars Opera.
