|ALBY AND THE BIG FELLAH|
|Author||BIRD, John C - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author|
|Synopsis||The action takes place in a hospital room where 15-year-old Alby, suffering from cancer, is being visted by his best friend, Matt. The play explores the differing reactions of the two boys to the impending possibility of Alby's death. Despite the sombre scenario, Alby (sporting a Che Guevara beret to hide his loss of hair after chemotherapy treatment) retains his sense of humour throughout and provides a droll commentary on his illness, the medical profession and his conception of Heaven and its proprietor, who he always refers to as The Big Fellah. The play ends on an upbeat note.|
