Second Most Disappointing

“If you have to pay then you make more effort. Look again. Look at that magnificent sculpture again with your wallet somewhat lighter. Doesn’t it seem … better? Brighter? More impressive? More worth your time? A good day out?”


“[Carr] has talent in abundance” – Northern Echo

“tomorrow’s theatrical big hitters” – Shields Gazette

“funny but very touching … Carr, deftly and with a light touch, reveals layers of emotion” – British Theatre Guide

“Carr’s writing doesn’t sugar-coat the truth, but it’s refreshing to see such an honest account” – The Evening Chronicle

“Carr’s writing is punchy, honest and believable” – The Public Reviews

The Angel of the North was voted the second most disappointing day out in an online poll.

Armed with only her kiosk and her wits, Pamela Frisbee sets about restoring the sculpture’s tarnished reputation. But it will take more than good intentions and an over-priced Jaffa Cake to help hapless sightseer Alan with his stroppy teenage step-daughter.
