A comic and heart-warming play about teenager Michael Croxley.

Michael's stammer has contributed to his fear of public speaking. But then the girl he adores, Lynne Hargreaves, reads a composition of his in double English, and discovers he's a whizz with words and his spelling is stupendous. When she asks him to be part of the school spelling-bee team, how can he refuse? He accepts gallantly. Secretly he sobs to his Nana, terrified at the prospect - and his Scottish Nana comes to the rescue with the help of Robert The Bruce.

Written by Chris Wilson. Starring Mykola Allen as Michael, Sophie McShera as Lynne and Maureen Beattie as Nana, with Paul Copley, Poppy Rush, Jack Ryan, Seamus O'Neill and Sue Addlestone. Producer/Director: Pauline Harris.
