An accountant named George has to go on for Edwin Booth ("Eddie") and play alongside such luminaries as Sarah Siddons, Dame Ellen Terry (Sir John Gieldgud's Grandmother) and Henry Irving. Costumed as Hamlet, the incredulous Geroge is shoved on by the insistent stage manager. As the Nightmare unfolds, George is catapulted through a series of plays and in the last scene the actor's worst nightmare becomes strangely real as a reluctant George is finally obliged to say the right lines.

Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society is still on the brink of bankruptcy, but Gordon's creative juices have been flowing again and once more he's convinced he has a production that will be a complete sell-out. This time he's written a panto . . . with a twist! But a series of seemingly insurmountable technical difficulties threatens the success of the production. Will the show go on??
