Meet Kitty Clogg. Lives by herself in Single Street, the oldest street intown, and certain in her belief that she is never going to die. Kitty’sgot a few things on her mind. There’s neighbour Phyllis, determined
to ply Kitty with industrial quantities of questionable wine. There’s neighbour Jack, self-anointed inventor of the iPod and never slow to remind Kitty about what a crank she is. There’s ex-Yoga master turned cowboy builder, keen to throw up an apartment complex out back of
Kitty’s house. Then there’s the mystery of what happened to the main man in Kitty’s life. Here one day, gone the next, without so much as a thank you for the memories.

With her singular attitude, Kitty doles out the warp and woof of her life. And it’s while in the throes of her daily commentaries thatthe spectre of memory starts to niggle Kitty. So much so that Kitty feels compelled to make one final effort to uncover the truth of her vanished man’s whereabouts.

The Good Crank is written by Alan McMonagle and directed by Gorretti Slavin. Rose Henderson will play the role of Kitty Clogg aka the Good Crank.
