“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?”

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.

Produced by Cloud Nine as part of ‘Unreal’; The Customs House, South Shields, June 2009

The cast was as follows:

ALAN: Chris Connel
LOUISE: Christina Dawson
PAMELA: Tracey Gillman

Directed by Jackie Fielding
