Three Sumner Tales is a story of Sting the boy, the young man; it is an utterly stunning piece of work. Adapted by James Berryman into 3 x 30 minute semi-biographical situation comedies (TV sitcom) from the book ‘A Sting in the Tail’, the only biography about, and approved of, by Sting.
Each of these real life scripts delivers some truly slick comedy, and Jim Berryman’s writing talents bring to each one of them a kind of magic that is quite hilarious and in the tradition of TV’s ‘Only Fool’s and Horses’, ‘Dad’s Army’ and ‘Fawlty Towers’. The intricate storylines in ‘Three Sumner Tales’ are delivered with a sprinkling of slapstick that has been lovingly-crafted. Even though these relate to some years after their setting, Jim Berryman’s writing is evergreen. Revealed within are issues of Sting’s personality, excitement and triumph, all set against a setting that will appeal to any age.
