Product Information

3m, 2f.

  • Working in a University laboratory for seventeen years Frank and his faithful assistant, Barbara, have given their lives to the search for a cure for the common cold.
  • Just as he is about to achieve a breakthrough, his world crashes about him.
  • His laboratory is threatened with shutdown in the cause of economy and almost worse, the Vice-Chancellor raises the question whether anyone really wants a cure.
  • In addition to this Frank has to cope with his shifting and uncertain relationship with Barbara, a trade-unionist porter who among other things, causes Frank's bicycle to be "destructed" to a lump of shapeless metal), and the arrival of a young and sexy student.
  • Finally, driven nearly out of his mind, he makes a random phone call and finds himself talking to the Um Al Quaiwan branch of the Samaritans.
