A play by one of Britain's best-selling writers

Bazaar and Rummage brings together a neurotic do-gooder, a trainee social worker and three agoraphobics who have been persuaded to venture out of their homes to run a jumble sale. "As a study of agoraphobia, Bazaar and Rummage...is written with great verve, style and wit." (Benedict Nightingale); Set in an adult literacy class where the student's fear of ignorance is as much of a handicap as their inability to read, Groping for Words is a "close up of the social scrap-heap, written in a fine vein of comic indignation and giving a voice to people whose lives are mainly spent in queues and waiting rooms." (Irving Wardle, The Times); Womberang shows free spirit Rita Onions bringing joy and anarchy to the grim waiting-room of a gynaecology clinic. "A daydream of mastered fear" (New Society)
