 A B O U T


Life's tough if you grew up in the thirties. And Henry Pratt never even had a parrot.

Weedy, unprepossessing Henry Pratt is born in Yorkshire into eccentric surroundings. Never seeming to fit in anywhere, he is destined to be one of life's mediocrities . It may not amuse him, but it will amuse you, in this inventive and definitively Northern comedy about the small things in life.
