WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?!
The well-meaning amateurs of the Cornley Drama Society perform a half-hour play - live! - on BBC ONE : a horror story, a wartime drama, a legal thriller, a period romance, a deep south melodrama and a Christmas fable. And every week, the performance goes terribly, terribly wrong.
