Stanley Price obituary

Between the 1960s and 90s, with his wonderful talent for spotting the comic potential in almost any situation, my friend Stanley Price, who has died aged 87, was one of a small number of successful British writers for stage, screen and television.

He wrote a stream of extremely funny comedies for the West End stage, beginning with Horizontal Hold (1967), which was made into a television version starring Sheila Hancock. This was followed by The Two of Me (1975), with David and Clive Swift, Moving (1981), with Penelope Keith, which became a TV series in 1985, and Why Me? (1985), with Richard Briers, also followed by a TV series.
