Past Production - 171

a farce by Ray Cooney 13.10.15 - 17.10.15

Dr David Mortimore is about to address a neurologists’ convention, which will probably earn him a knighthood. While putting the final touches to his speech an old flame, Jane Tate, arrives and announces that their liaison years ago resulted in a son, Leslie , who is downstairs desperate to meet his dad.

Frantic to hide this catastrophic news from his wife and the hospital authorities, David is forced to invent not one but two non-existent husbands for Jane and enlist the help of his colleague Hubert Bonney.

Events are further complicated by the presence of a police sergeant, a wandering senile patient, an assortment of matrons (real and otherwise) a syringe full of tranquilizer and the costumes for the hospital pantomime!
