Reality Is An Illusion Caused By Lack Of N F Simpson

David Quantick presents a distinctive appraisal of playwright NF 'Wally' Simpson, author of One Way Pendulum and A Resounding Tinkle.
The programme examines Simpson's impact on the turbulent theatre scene of the late 50s, the influence of his plays, his disappearance and his return to The Royal Court Theatre after forty years with a new play entitled If So, Then Yes.
Contributors include John Mortimer, Jonathan Miller, John Fortune, Eric Sykes, Jonathan Coe, Armando Iannucci, David Nobbs, Barry Cryer, Eleanor Bron, Ned Sherrin, and Simpson himself.
