HERRINGS  is a very short stage play. There are three characters: H. Griffiths, M. Bogush and Voice Off. H. Griffiths speaks first:

I am H. Griffiths, the celebrated writer of novels of romantic, unrequited love. What you are about to see took place in the bridal suite of a 5 star hotel on Sunset Boulevard. It was during the afternoon of July 21st 1969 – the day mankind first walked on the moon.

You can download this stage play as a .pdf

    David, this is marvellous. I think perhaps it’s time you gave it another airing!

    As I said to you, the cry of “Rissole!” reminds me of a very rude joke but I’m assuming that wasn’t the inspiration. If it was, then I’m looking forward to the sequel very much!

    The play was prompted by a series of incidents in a hotel in downtown Chicago. There may be companion pieces, however.

What do you think?
