Summary

This short amateur drama tells the story of a man, who replies 'yes dear' to all his wife's demands. He is forced to take matters into his own hands when a burglar enters their house. An Albany Cine Club production, made by members in the mid 1960s.

Description

A man enters his living room and settles into an armchair saying 'As she's out tonight perhaps I'll settle down with the fire'. 'In view of the fact that it's raining, I'm not going out after all,' his wife announces. He continues to read the newspaper until she tells him off for making too much noise. 'Yes dear,' he says. She tells him to get some logs for the fire, so she can enjoy her evening at home. 'Yes dear,' he replies. When he returns with the news there are none chopped, she tells him to chop some now. 'Yes dear,' he replies. A loud thump is heard from behind the door. A burglar enters the room, brandishing a torch at the woman. Her husband enters with the logs. 'Don't just stand there, do something!' she says. 'Yes dear!' he replies, before handing the burglar an axe. There you are mate, she's all yours,' he says with a smile. The End.
