Another script, entitled 'House of Dolls' was written but never produced. The cast performed the script at the 'Sector 25' convention in 2006, and a recording of the first act is available on YouTube. It's well worth a look, even if just to see Wayne Forrester's wonderful over-acting.
The video below will play all five clips back-to-back.
