This play has not been published in book form but is still available for performance. A digital version of the script can be purchased above for the purposes of printing off a cast set of scripts.

The play is set in 1950s Nottingham, and follows a group of friends who work on the production line of the John Player tobacco factory. Cyn is an aspiring starlet, beautiful and sassy; Vee has just got married but feels insecure about what her new situation requires; Glad has a dark but wonderful secret; and Mae, who comes to work in the big city, has a warm heart and an open mind, and might just rescue them all in the end...
Player's Angels offers great parts for four women and a man (ages range from early 20s to 40s), and can be staged fairly simply. The 1950s setting allows for great costumes and authentic stage design, but it can also be staged with minimal requirements, according to budget.
