Call Me Merman

Synopsis:
set in the office of an actors' agent, is a satire of the industry that the audience has paid money to see. With its gags about modish Scottish playwrights, over-educated english directors and returning famous actors (a certain ewan Carlyle is in town to shoot a movie), the play is always on the verge of short-circuiting itself. the Guardian
