After The King Must Die we here at the studio have decided to spend a few weeks dvoted to those plays we never seem to play enough of.  Those one acts the BBC is so famous for.  So after we've seen how the vicar does as a home guardsman in The Recruit and hear about the Ministry of talents in sceptred isle we'll travel in our minds to Sussex georgeous Sussex and listen to The Secret Summer of Daniel Lions.  Tom a young Methodist is drawn to movies when a movie set comes to his vvillage at the turn of the twentieth century.  It's a gret cast and we think you'll enjoy it.  Speaking of plays ... what are some of your favorites?  Would you like to co host a play?  It must be at most an hour and a half at least fifteen to thirty minutes.  Yes the bBC did have fifteen minuters.  Email me at brunchwiththebrits@gmail.com or and producerdirectormaria@gmail.com if the play is more then 90 minutes we'll probably run it between commedy series.  Enjoy Remember we're on facebook and twitter at bwtbrits
