Calliope announces auditions for First Things First, a British comedy by Derek Benfield.

George has been Pete's best man at both of his weddings. Pete, now happily married to Sarah, is shocked when he learns that his first wife, Jessica, was not killed in a climbing accident, as they had thought, but is alive and well and keen to resume her life with Pete. This leads to a series of hilarious situations as George helps Pete try to find a way out of his untoward predicament without upsetting either of Pete’s wives or his second wife’s domineering mother.
