“My Friend Miss Flint” by Donald Churchill and Peter Yeldham (June 2022)

When Tom Lambert, botanist and TV gardening personality, receives a call from Inland Revenue enquiring about his public relations consultant Joanna Flint, he can honestly say he has never heard of her. By lunchtime, he knows all about Miss Flint: his accountant and ex wife confesses that she invented Miss Flint as a tax dodge. This tricky situation sets the stage for sparkling comedy.

What they said about My Friend Miss Flint:

“The play was really good. It was great to get out and see one again. Almost didnโ€™t realise โ€˜I needed thisโ€™โ€ฆ there was a massive smile on my face for so much of it, which broke into audible laughter at the twists and turns towards the end of the play”

“So glad to hear no one was hurt [when the light blew]. Congratulations on a very successful run with, My Friend Miss Flint. More please, with or without Tax Inspectors.”

“Very well done. We really enjoyed the very funny Our Friend Miss Flint, a tremendous effort made by all concerned. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Itโ€™s so good to hear our name on the lips of so many down South, the Border Reiverโ€™s of old would be very pleased.

There is a story that long ago in the far, far north of England a naughty monk stole some Cheese and his brother monks prayed hard to turn the culprit into a Fox, or Dodd in old English. The naughty monk was turned into a Fox for short time and thereafter his descendants were call Dodd or Dodds.

Oddly, I donโ€™t like Cheese.
