There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A play about the dog-eat-dog world of television.

Adam is a fringe dramatist plucked from obscurity by a script editor striving to make her mark in a small independent TV company. Because Adam happens to be in a wheelchair, Sarah proposes he writes the first ever TV sitcom about disability. He accepts the commission with predictably disastrous results.

Simon Block's play A Place at the Table was first staged at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2000.
