Terence Frisby

Terence Frisby’s most famous play, There’s A Girl In My Soup, was London’s longest-running comedy (six and a half years)1966-1972 and a worldwide smash hit with long runs on Broadway, in Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Sydney, Rome, Vienna, Prague and many other places. It is still constantly produced across the globe.

His script for the equally successful film, which starred Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn, won the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Award in 1970 for the Best British Comedy Screenplay.

His radio play, Just Remember Two Things: It’s Not Fair And Don’t Be Late for BBC Radio Four, on which Kisses On A Postcard is based, won The Giles Cooper Play Of The Year Award and achieved some sort of record by being broadcast ten times in a few months on Radio 4 and BBC World Service.
