Description Bill is an experienced theatre director on the verge of a nervous breakdown. With less than 24 hours until the curtain goes up, this production is unravelling fast. Enter Jules, the latest fresh-faced star of TV's Murder Squad. He's the name that's going to sell the tickets and without whom the show is doomed. But when Jules fails to comprehend the simplest of acting tasks (why he has to slip on the banana peel or remember his entrances), Bill's new mission becomes to painstakingly (and hilariously) teach his young pupil the very meaning of farce.
