Plot SummaryA charming British comedy, set in the less glamorous regions of the theatrical world.| Dexter King is an American actor performing as the sidekick to a popular comic in the West End. While Dexter's career is languishing, he falls in love with Kate Lemon, a hospital nurse who administers weekly shots to him. After months of fumbling, the two finally hook up romantically, only to become enmeshed in an hilarious slapstick bedroom scene. But, as luck would have it, just as Dexter's love life perks up, he loses his theater job. Soon, though, he wins the lead role in "Elephant" -- a musical version of "The Elephant Man"!
