A playscript comedy set in a fictional shop. A modern day 'Fawlty Towers".
Welcome to the shopping world of BYERITE. The store is managed by arrogant and ambitious manager, Mr Colin Jordan. His visions for the store are supported by his flowery assistant, Mr Christopher Reeve.
Colin is constantly trying to impress the stores repulsive Director Larry Forsyth and his sycophantic tendencies are as apparent as Larry’s own obvious disdain for blatant homosexual, Chris.
Supporting Colin are a diverse collection of societies misfits ranging from the retired schoolteacher to the impressionable warehouse apprentice and then there is Charlie.
Throughout the play the staff face a number of challenging ‘initiatives’ faxed from Head Office. These are often wrongly interpreted and conveyed to the staff by Mr Jordan eager to please his superiors.
In ‘Three for one’, we are introduced to the staff at the morning briefing. Here, Colin in his enthusiasm has misread the crucial details of Larry’s fax from Head Office. A message that should have read ‘Bye one get free freeze’ in Colin’s head has become ‘Bye one get three free’. This misunderstanding leads to utter chaos as he leads his dim-witted staff on a mission that could see the shop bankrupt before the day is over!
