Mechanic Leigh cover (2)

Mechanic Leigh, recounts the tales of a precocious boy growing up in the 1960s. He is writing his memoirs – memories, as he calls them – with Ghost Writer’s help. With a glib tongue and a sharp mind, Leigh embellishes his tales and creates a more acceptable world with himself as the star. In doing so, he rewards us with belly laughs. 

He and his friends amuse themselves through escapades filled with mischief, defiance and hilarity – tonics to soothe the harsh realities of their desperately meagre surroundings. His memoirs, sorry memories, fill us with a laugh a minute. 

As Leigh, living in his past, relates the stories, he engages Ghost Writer in the present. They banter, argue and laugh, crossing the time zones with seamless and boisterous ease. 

The dialogue is in script format and each episode is a standalone with a fine thread connecting and propelling the stories. 

Welcome to the mischievous world of Mechanic Leigh and discover a little of your youth – no matter where you grew up – in his past.
