Already It's Tomorrow

Already It's Tomorrow

1962 - United Kingdom

After a road accident, an attractive girl recovers consciousness in a strange room. With her is a young man she has never seen before.

Already It's Tomorrow flutters between the escapism of a girl and the fantasy of a boy. Neither the girl (Valerie Gearon) nor the boy (Alfred Lynch) is equal to the problems that crop up in their lives. The boy lives in a world of dreams. He "borrows" his landlady's car and can't bring himself to believe he has knocked down the girl and injured her. The boy takes the girl back to his bedsitter. They don't know each other's names. They are both embarrassed. But tenderness, a quality lacking in both their lives until then, pervades the only room. Threatening the idyll are the boy's landlady, played by Kate Behrens, and the police. A stronger character than the boy might be expected to react more positively, but experience is teaching him. In the play the two main characters were not named only referred to in the credits as 'The Boy' and 'The Girl'. Apart from them and the landlady the only other character was played by William Marlowe. Already It's Tomorrow was written by Lynne Reid Banks, directed by June Howson and produced by George More O'Ferall. Shown at 7.30pm on Thursday 20 September 1962 under the Thirty Minute Theatre strand. An Anglia Television Production.
