My Very Own Story: Synopsis

Cast: 7 male / 6 female
Running time (approximate): 1 hour 35 minutes - not including the interval
Acting edition: Published by Samuel French

Due to an unfortunate triple booking, three storytellers, Peter, Paul and Percy, arrive simultaneously each to tell his own story.

After some acrimony, Percy wins out and is soon telling his story - a Victorian yarn featuring, to his dismay, Paul who has hi-jacked the leading role. Soon Peter in turn is continuing Percy's unresolved fable only to find Percy appearing in this.

In due course, Peter appears in Paul's gothic story (an extension of Peter's forties tale) and together they reach a surprisingly happy conclusion.
