No Chance


6.20pm.

 

‘When I Needed You’ – Erasure



 

AAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHH!!!

 

MAGGIE!

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?!

WHY?  OH GOD, WHY?  EH?  THEN?

EH?  EH?  COCKER?  EH?!

 

I saw her for about five minutes today and she hasn’t replied to my letter or done any further work on the poster for THE CHINESE PLAY

 

I want to be with her all the time, y’know? 

 

She’s been driving around all day again, in Vinnie + Dom’s really fantastic sports car.  I reckon she must fancy one of them.  OR BOTH!  I bet she does, and she’ll end up going out with one of them and that’ll be it: NO CHANCE FOR WINTERFOOD, NO WAY, BYE-BYE!

 

‘IT’S NOT RAIGHT!  IT IN’T!’ said a Yorkshireman.

 

Jamie Davenport gave Simon a message from her today, apologising that she won’t be able to join him at the Tech Disco.  Yeah, cos she’ll be with Vinnie + Dom in that fucking CAR!

 

WAAAAAAAGH!

 

I want Maggie here, now.  FOOOOOOOOK!

 

‘Bostich’ – Yello



THE CHINESE PLAY

More press releases went out today.  We’re even doing some national papers tomorrow.  There’s also been some cast re-alignments: Darren Marsh is no longer to play ‘Customer’ and will be replaced by Simon Lewis.  Donna Davidson will now be playing the ‘Customer’ Sharon used to play.  I will now play the ‘Teacher’, Marita will play ‘Girl’ and Gemma Winchester will be ‘God’.
