A new comic drama, starring Maureen Lipman, about the life of the famous play agent, Peggy Ramsay, who helped transform post-war British dramaAlan Plater's play for the Hampstead Theatre in London is a witty and poignant portrait of Margaret 'Peggy' Ramsay, the larger-than-life play agent who nurtured several generations of British playwrights (John Arden, Alan Ayckbourn, Robert Bolt, Edward Bond, David Hare, Caryl Churchill, David Hare, Christopher Hampton, Joe Orton, and others) from the late 1950s to the early 1980s.

Peggy was one of the most influential behind-the-scenes figures in post-war British theatre.

Focusing on one fateful day of her life, when old clients are exiting and new ones are entering, Plater's play is a meditation on the creative spirit.

The play premièred at the Hampstead Theatre, London, 23 November 1999."Alan Plater's hilarious celebration of the late literary agent Peggy Ramsay" (The Times)
