With divorce proceedings pending, Helen and Simon Simpson instruct estate agent, Simon Allcock to find a buyer for their house. Instead, the unscrupulous Simon decides to use their empty property for romantic assignation with his secretary, Felicity. His carefully laid plans are dashed though, by the arrival of his hapless assistant, Bernard, who really is trying to sell their house, followed by a seductive female doctor and Bernard’s very strange wife, not to mention the formidable WI lady who collects unwanted clothes and runs the local amateur dramatics society.
Further complications arise when Helen returns unexpectedly to find a drunk Lionel, who has also returned thinking that Helen is still there and hoping to make up. Unfortunately, she finds Lionel to be in a steamy embrace with a reluctant and confused, Felicity, who (for various reasons) is wearing Helen’s clothes.
In the midst of all this a box of costumes for ‘Jack And The Beanstalk’ arrives, complete with a pantomime cow, which, due to a lot of missing clothes is pressed into use by Simon and Felicity. Mistaken identities, dropped and ripped-off trousers, doors opening and closing… and everything else you’d expect from a contemporary farce. Another brilliant fast-paced comedy from the writer of ‘Fairway To Heaven’.
Suitable for ages 15 years and over.
