This week ScriptTank will be hearing Wishbone Junction – a new stage play by long-time member Ben Francis.
Ted and Beauregard Billings are conjoined twins living in a small town in America. When they were children, known as Ted and Todd, they had performed in a travelling freak show run by their father. That closed down years ago and their father has died, but Beauregard still wants to break into show business. Janie Fairfield, a TV executive, comes to visit the twins, offering them the chance to have their own series. But what does she really want? And why is Ted so reluctant to move to the city?
Wishbone Junction is a stage play that was first heard at ScriptTank in a shortened version earlier this year.
