Told with black humour, this is the story of a group of no-hope rep actors in Liverpool in the mid 50s, doing Peter Pan. Stella, the heroine who is Tinkerbell, is a sad and lonely young woman who repeatedly calls the speaking clock for comfort.

The voices of Paul McGann weave this neighborhood tale of Liverpool. At age fifteen, Stella is a self-possessed young woman who wreaks havoc on the troopers at the regional theater where she has hired on as a gofer. This is not a lighthearted romp though the vagaries of theater life, but rather a sadness as told at the hands of the gossips at the corner table. As lies and intrigues abound, Paul McGann ably plays every part in the unraveling of these lives with gentleness and sensitivity. B.H.B.
