About the Resource

 

You'll never eat another burger after seeing this play - at least none produced by the chip-loving gangster Big Mac. Will Mac get his hands on Chip McFish's taters? Why is the Inspector keeping his eyes peeled?

This is a comic performance piece for 5 actors that has been very successfully used for Edexcel GCSE performance exams producing high grades each time. It was inspired by a combination of bad police shows on television and John Godber's BOUNCERS. It has simple staging with very simple costume and a few props. There are lots of opportuities for physicality. Although the characters are described as male, all of the roles have been successfully played by girls.
