Dolly

In a puddle in the path on the street outside a flat, a man finds a lost doll. Dolly is the story of this encounter and the unlikely friendship which follows. A play for young audiences, age 5+. Development continues in 2017.

In the meantime, here’s Louis Armstrong. 

I said hello, Dolly, well, hello, Dolly
It’s so nice to have you back where you belong
You’re lookin’ swell, Dolly, I can tell, Dolly
You’re still glowin’ you’re still crowin’
You’re still goin’ strong
I feel the room swayin’
While that ole band keeps on playin’
One of your old favourite songs from way back when
So take her wrap, fellas, f
ind her an empty lap, fellas
Dolly’ll never go away again
