Overview

School's out, and David has been sent to spend the holidays with his Aunt Deelie, Uncle Robert and cousin Charlene in the rough part of town. It's a summer of stories; In the shed, Uncle Robert prepares to impress the local history society with his revelations about Charles Dickens in Doncaster; On the allotment, Charlene acts out her favourite soaps; Even Gobbo and Wink, Charlene's non-too-bright conspirators, have rich fantasy lives brimming with the thrills and importance their real lives lack. But when a child goes missing, accusations are thrown at David's new friends, and the line between fact and fiction becomes dangerously blurred?

Gong Donkeys is a hilarious, bizarre and touching story about storytelling, as told by The Catcher in The Rye, an SAS commando and Charlene from number 27.
Gong Donkeys is published to tie in with the play's premiere at London's Bush Theatre in November 2004.
