The Happy Apple
By  Jack Pulman
Directed by Barry Lee

Freddie, Arthur and Murray have started up their own advertising firm but things are not going too well. As Murray talks to the important client, Porter and Kenilworth are stripping his office of unpaid-for goods. Kenilworth seems a strange sort of removal man, unusually acquainted with classical music and literature. The pardners suddenly discover in Nancy, their young secretary, an ideal person on whom to build advertising schemes – a perfect ‘median type’; i.e., average. Kenilworth is also pressed to service to bring culture to the very philistine Murray. The firm prospers, but unfortunately the “culture drug’ has unexpected side effects on Nancy, who is also chased by the important client for other reasons. Eventually she explodes in a bombshell.
