Keith Waterhouse: Collected Plays Summary

Keith Waterhouse: Collected Plays by Keith Waterhouse

Keith Waterhouse is one of Britain's most popular writers in nearly every field. This collection brings together for the first time his most celebrated plays from a career spanning more than forty years. Our Song is a warm, tender, romantic drama, infused with moments of great humour. Pulling himself out of the rut of his middle-aged executive lifestyle, Roger Piper stumbles into a sixteen-month tempestuous affair. Billy Liar tells the story of a funeral parlour worker with a humdrum life, who spends most of his time dreaming of ways to escape his drab existence in Yorkshire. Adapted from his celebrated novel. Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell Gambler, journalist, fervent alcoholic, four-times married Jeffrey Bernard writes the'Low Life' column for the Spectator magazine. Locked in The Coach and Horses in Soho overnight, he has time to reflect on a dissolute life. Good Grief is a sensitive, wryly humorous study of a middle-aged widow, coming to terms with bereavement, who finds the courage to break with the past. Mr and Mrs Nobody is an adaptation of George and Weedon Grossmith's comic novel The Diary Of A Nobody and Mrs Pooter's Diary. A respectable Victorian clerk has lofty social aspirations.

Perhaps his best-known work is the highly-successful novel, play and film, Billy Liar.
