Peggy For You is set in the chaotic office of Peggy Ramsay, the most celebrated theatrical agent of the time. It is a witty, wry but an unsentimental account of this extraordinary larger than life woman who at one time or another was the agent to some of our most renowned playwrights. The action takes place during the course of one day in the late sixties where we meet three of her fictional clients, all at various points in their career. Added to this mixture is secretary Tessa, a wonderfully bubbly character who somehow manages to juggle all the demands of Peggy and her clients. Alan Plater, who was with Peggy for 30 years, provides an insightful script into this complex character and how she drove playwrights into producing great work for the stage.
