Taking early retirement and discovering the joys of social networking, the shine comes off Patrice French’s new life when her technophobic pal Helen goes into hospital with Patrice’s old laptop and is short of things to do. Iain Heggie’s new comedy The Queen Of Lucky People finds human nature wanting in old familiar ways. Come and meet Patrice, Helen, a dog with a severe barking addiction, a chronically constipated, morbidly obese locksmith, a tough-talking Eastern European nurse and a middle-aged alcoholic who seems to be having an on/off relationship with Patrice’s female neighbour upstairs.
