Roaches Coaches

By FADS
Join struggling small-town bus depot owner Keith Roache and his hapless team as they do their best to get the buses out despite vandalism, terrorism, extreme feminism and a severe lack of optimism. Having fallen upon hard times, Keith does his best but he’s always one step behind lazy Jimmy, hopeless Carol, desperate Mags, womaniser Kenny, naïve William, and camp Laurence. (A FADS production, written and directed by Ian Kidd.)
