The Wooden Overcoat Saturday Play 22/12/07
David Tennant and Julia Davis star in this macabre and hilarious drama set in London in 1951 and dramatised by Mark Gatiss. Benji has murdered his mistress and, much to his surprise, he has got away with it.
At a loss as to what to do after his acquittal, Benji discovers the Asterisk Club, founded by Clifford Flush. The Club is for those who have strayed beyond the pale, but not paid the ultimate price. To join, qualified prospective members must name the Club as the beneficiary of their will to enjoy its comforts and unique benefits.
However, with the Club full, Benji finds himself lodging in a rat-infested house next door with a young bohemian couple, Fan and Peter. Retired rat catcher Mr Alfred L Beesum arrives but, suddenly, Benji is found dead.
Set in the pre-chic Chelsea of rat-infested boarding houses and tattered ration books, The Wooden Overcoat stars Tom Allen as Benji, Julia Davis as Fan, David Tennant as Peter and Alan David as Mr Beesum.
