In order to preserve this identity, he works as a refuse collector and often frequents his local pub. One day a new barmaid, Roxy, starts work there and not only Cy but also another regular, Chris, fall for her. With Mister Digweed in the role of pub landlord, we watch as Cy, using a mobile telephone and the power to imitate voices, masquerades as Chris to win Roxy’s affections with funny and poignant results in a comedy in which nobody is who they seem.Approximate running time with 15 minute intermission – 2 hours.
