    The Quibbles Radio Shows is a collection of ten comedy sketches, reminiscent of radio shows of the ’40s and ’50’s, featuring a delightfully quarrelsome couple, Carol and Quentin Quibble, in the hilarious skirmishes of everyday life. Carol is a well-meaning helpmate, eager to improve herself and her husband. Quentin is mostly interested in golf. Their next door neighbor, Madge, is the town busybody. Sketches from The Quibbles Radio Shows are easy to perform with well-drawn characters. Can be fully mounted plays, used in classes, or included in variety shows. Such fun!

    It is such a pleasure to have an unique theatre experience with humor and fun that beckons back to the days of radio, the audience filling in the spaces with their imaginations. Wynne Weiss, Vista, California Public Library
