Well it’s a comedy.
Love Is All Around the publishing company is running a competition to find new romantic fiction. Leonard submits his work under the female pseudonym "Myrtle Banbury". In order to collect his financial reward Leonard is forced to carry on the pretence that "Myrtle" exists.
His teenaged daughter and father play along with the deception, but expect, and receive, financial rewards from Leonard's wallet for their trouble. Things turn out OK in the end, but you’ll have to come to The Courthouse to find out how.


Simon William’s plays include: Boys Will be Boys, Double Death, Happy Birthday Me, The Hound of the Baskervilles, Kiss of Death, Laying the Ghost, A Little Matter of Dirt, Nobody’s Fool and Switchback.
