The opening scene of Stuck for Cash graphically portrays every shopaholic's nightmare. A routine attempt by a rich man to withdraw money goes badly wrong when a cash machine swallows his hand. As the drama, performed by A Modest Proposal, unfolds, various characters seeking cash become involved, including a thief whose hand gets stuck in the rich man's pocket. David Collier, the playwright, said: 'They all end up happily, and the drama is a light-hearted one with a strong moral that you can find happiness, but only with the co-operation of other people. The 25-minute play can be seen at noon today at Surrey Quays shopping centre, tomorrow at Putney Exchange centre (1pm), and on Friday at Ealing Broadway centre (1.30pm).
