In 1964 a fifty-one-year-old man meets a twenty-seven-year-old woman at work.
She’s young, buxom, blonde, pretty. And just about to get married…
Over the years, as they work together, the two grow closer; they become friends. He becomes obsessed with her. She promises him one night of lust in Brighton. Just one night. Just to get it out of his system.
He takes her up on her offer and then begins one of the most well-known secret affairs of the twentieth century.
He was Sid James.
She was Barbara Windsor.
Terry Johnson’s biographical play follows the affair from their first meeting all the way to its conclusion. Focusing on the events during the making of four Carry On films, and all set in a leaky and distinctly unglamorous caravan. It’s funny, touching and ultimately tragically sad as the lives of these icons of British comedy are put under the theatrical microscope.
