This radio play took months to make but still sounds fresh and lively. Yes, it's obvious that most of us were untrained actors. Yes, it's also obvious that the script doesn't flow as much as it should even though Patrick edited the thing heavily. And, yes, it's absolutely obvious that it was fun to make. Just possibly, someone hearing it for the first time might enjoy it as much as we did. 

Highlights include the joyous melody of "We, Him and Us Three", Lindsay's fractious Scottish accent, Jim Gibson's roly-poly voice (he sounds the best of all of us) and the time when Modra finally got that line right (although you'd never know that it took so long): "What's the difference does a day make?", indeed.

Some of the songs were performed live on No Night Sweats last performance.
