Synopsis

​The main theme of the play is Sandra’s hunt for a boyfriend and Tina tries to help by giving Sandra a self-help book “How To Catch A Man In Six Easy Steps”.  Tina also introduces Sandra to Jack, the First Aid guy.  But Sandra isn’t interested.  She wants Robert.  But Robert is engaged to the gorgeous Pam.

Sandra reads from the book, “If the man you want to catch already has a partner, you have to be devious.”  She laughs wickedly.  “Hmmmm, devious… I think I can manage that.”

This play is a modern day comedy set in a fortune telling tent at a fair.  It’s suitable for most audiences, except young children.  Both Acts are set in the tent, so no set changes are required on stage.
