Evening With Gary Lineker / Trench Kiss
Two plays in one books
Evening With Gary Lineker -
July 4th, 1990. In Italy, England are playing Germany in the Semi final of the World Cup. In Majorca, Bill and Monica are on holiday trying to rekindle a failing marriage. Monica dreams of an affair with Gary Lineker, the `Queen Mother of Football’, though in fact she’s been seeing Dan, a friend of Bill’s and a travel writer whose books are published by Bill’s firm. Circumstances change when Dan unexpectedly arrives at their hotel, ostensibly in Majorca to write an article. But as the game begins, the three, in the company of Bill’s colleague Ian and Birgitta, a local German tourist rep they’ve befriended, settle down to watch the game on TV. Through ninety minutes, extra time and the infamous penalty shoot out, the field of battle switches between the hotel and the Italian football pitch as Monica, Bill and the England team approach the inevitable. `Congratulations, brilliant and well done to what is easily the funniest play in the West End and probably the funniest play in the universe.’ Daily Express.

Jim and Sally are on holiday in Flanders, fulfilling not only Jim’s obsession with the First World War but his search for the fate of his grandfather, who went missing in battle. While Jim is off looking at gravestones, a startled Sally is suddenly confronted by Jasper Everly, a soldier who by a quirk of fate has been flung forward in time from the Great War and 1916 to the present day. Falling for his charm and apparent innocence, Sally elbows Jim and brings Jasper back to London, where he begins a hilarious roller-coaster ride through the late 20th century in this endearing comedy of relationships, historical perspectives and `progress’. Available in a volume with An Evening with Gary Lineker.
