J. A. B. is a comic play within a comic play. Very loosely based on three classic stories from British Literature: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde; Frankenstein and Dracula, J. A. B. is given the full ETC treatment when a small, deservedly unsuccessful, charmingly inept film company is mistakenly given the job of preparing the script for next summer’s biggest Hollywood epic.
J.A.B. includes a full range of Hollywood heroes that are ever so slightly wrong. J.A.B. looks at classic literature, is a spoof of the Hollywood blockbuster and also considers the nature of writing itself and all this in our established ETC comedy style.
