How's the World Treating You?

Jump to navigation Jump to search

A comedy written in 1966 by British playwright Roger Milner [1]. How’s The World Treating You? is full of old fashioned wise-cracking and ribaldry. Milner’s hero Frank More is a bit of a twit but an awfully likeable one. Watching him career from one mini-disaster to another in Milner’s surreal world of trouserless majors and errant washing machines is an entertaining, if baffling, ride.

First produced at the New Arts Theare Club, London, 1966. First published by Samuel French, London, 1966.
