Charles Harwood is an out-of-work actor, but fill-in jobs aren't
for him. He doesn't want to drive a minicab, deal dope or have
'another string to his bow' - he's a purist. And without any acting
to do, the main event of his day is an audition for an ice-cream
The next job, and getting through the day on the few quid in his
pocket, are Charlie's main preoccupations. In one day, he wends his
way through a traffic jam in his dilapidated car and meets old
faces. An after-work drink turns into a big night out - an
opening-night party, followed by a sexual encounter with a soignee
star with an arthritic hip.
This is the world of Charles Harwood and most other actors in
the business. It is a hand-to-mouth, event to event, lifetime spent
in a state of controlled desperation.
