Harriet, a publisher, is running a competition to find new romantic fiction written by women only.
Leonard is trying to get his books published, but Harriet keeps sending his manuscripts back because they are the work of a man.
When Leonard finally sends a manuscript based on his experience as a single parent and uses the female pseudonym Myrtle Banbury, Harriet is impressed.
She insists on meeting Myrtle so she can hand over the prize money and get Myrtle’s signature on a contract.
There then follow some hilarious encounters involving Leonard dressed as a woman and his family lending support.
The play is on from next Thursday to Saturday (5th-7th March) at 7.30pm each night.
Tickets priced £7 are available on 01909 501817 or www.acorntheatre.net
