Four actors (2m, 2f) and no set (just a few simple props)
LITTLE GRIMLEY Amateur Dramatic Society is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to four - the audiences aren't much bigger - and if they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out. "There's only one thing that sells tickets these days" argues Gordon the Chairman. "Sex!"
Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never forget!
One of the most successful short comedies ever produced for the amateur stage, Last Tango clocked up over 1000 performances in just three years. It's especially suitable for festivals, or as an aperitif for other productions. It requires no set, no complex lighting, and very few props. What you will need are four talented actors (two male, two female) and a director with a keen sense of fun and a love of fast-moving visual and verbal comedy.
Due to its success, Last Tango has spawned two sequels:
LAST TANGO is a play designed to be customised. Be sure to change the Little Grimley in the title to the name of your own town or village, and add a sprinkling of local references for extra spice.
