In the play Fay, host of the TV chat show Frankly Fay, is worried that her career is on the wane – and her private life isn’t up to much either. She is mortified to be re-united on the set of This Is Your Life, with Caroline Pollard, an old school friend she’s been avoiding for years, but Caroline’s bereavement gives her an idea that could rescue her ratings. Before long Caroline (a.k.a. Bollards) is appearing on Frankly Fay and winning the hearts of the daytime TV audience – so much so that very soon she has her own show, Candidly Caroline, and is heading for stardom … The fickle nature of fame, the difficulties faced by older women in the media and the vagaries of friendship are dissected hilariously in this sly and witty comedy.
