A small theatre group sets out to perform a spy thriller... But the two men in the company have reckoned without the feelings of their leading actress, who refuses to play the sexist roles written for her. How will they manage to complete the performance?


This lively and highly visual comedy examines sex-specific stereotypes in popular entertainment.

Extract from the script 'The Girl with the Golden Wig'

Dee: I'm quite happy to tell the story of Dick Bond and Silas Queeze. But if you want the story to be filled with ridiculous brainless women who fling themselves at Dick Bond all the time, then you will have to find someone else to play these parts.
Mel: Oh my god I give up. I can't work with this sort of attitude.
Ray: Wait a minute, Mel. Dee's just given me an idea. We must find someone else. Leave it to me. Right you lot, as you've seen, we've got a bit of a problem. One member of our cast is...indisposed. So we need to find someone else to take over the role. Someone who's a bit open-minded. Someone who doesn't mind a little bit, you know what I mean. Is there anyone here who thinks she might...No-one?
