Eyes Down, Pens Ready
Eyes Down, Pens Ready
This show is set in a Lincolnshire hostelry where a pub quiz is in progress. The team we meet call themselves 'my job's in telesales.' and are made up of Shannon, an accountant who has her own house and aspirations, her brother Dean, small-time drug dealer whose done time for something to with the credit cards and who is going nowhere, Shannon's best friend Janey and Dean's mate Jude. Now mid-twenties, they've known each other since schooldays and we discover quite a lot about them, largely through individual monologues when the lights go down and the rest of the action freezes. Shannon may be doing all right but she has never got over a schoolgirl crush, though she now thinks she's found a boy friend on the internet. Janey likes life as it is, why do you have to be ambitious? but is fed up with being bossed by Shannon. Jude goes off to secret raves and thinks of himself as part of 'a new age beat generation;' he wants to escape to exotic places - and is definitely going back to Benidorm, while Dean can't imagine life without Jude and wonders could he be gay.The quiz, with Dave best known for his karaoke, standing in for the usual quiz-master, is there as a framework for the show.
