Dramatizing the extreme depths to which some "reality shows" will sink in order to boost ratings, Good Television follows one such moral spiral to its explosive end. Connie -- an intervention counselor and producer of a television series that showcases people battling addictions -- has reservations about an upcoming episode. But against her better judgment, she agrees to travel to South Carolina with the rest of her colleagues in order to profile a young meth addict and his family. Connie's superiors are hungry for a risk-filled, riveting and potentially explosive episode, while Connie's concerned that she won't be able to fight off her own inner-demons. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
_"My Wonderful Day is one of the wittiest and most pristinely crafted of Mr. Ayckbourn’s dark farces."—_Wall Street Journal
“My Wonderful Day finds Ayckbourn in top form—and breaking new ground.”—The Telegraph
Nine-year-old Winnie is off sick from school for the day, but has an essay to write about “My Wonderful Day.” What better opportunity than quietly seated unnoticed in a corner, while her pregnant mother busies herself cleaning the home of a British television celebrity? When her Mother goes into labor, Winnie’s left in the house alone with the celebrity, his mistress, his wife and his best friend, discovering a wealth of material for her essay. The bizarre and increasingly frenetic comings and goings of adults in the weird household where she’s a silent observer fuels an essay that shocks her mother, but provides endless entertainment for the audience along the way.
