Shy and recently widowed Guy Jones decides to join his local amateur light operatic society to escape his loneliness. Despite having no previous experience - and very little talent - he soon finds himself progressing through a variety of roles (some with only one line) to becoming the leading man. How does he do it? By not saying “no” to anything, be it a request to obtain confidential information from his employers or an offer of illicit sex. The play cleverly draws parallels with John Gay’s The Beggar's Opera which, co-incidentally, the Pendon Amateur Light Operatic Society (PALOS) are in the process of rehearsing.
