The Harry Harrod Show used to be top of the ratings but now it’s on the slide and not even a third-rate pop star (who might once have had a hit in Finland) is willing to appear. Ray, the producer, and Tracy, the researcher, spend their lives on mobile phones, often three at a time, sometimes in stereo, their desperation spiralling and swooping in ever more imaginative and devious ways to insinuate themselves with the agent’s assistant, who is blocking their path to the agent, who is keeping them away from the pop star. Harry, meanwhile, is simply desperate.
Quick-fire, scurrilous and very, very funny, Harry and Me premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in March 1996.
