A comedy by Michael Cooney
Produced by Alison Cunnell - Wednesday 30th November to Saturday 3rd December 2005
This hilarious farce, written by Michael Cooney (son of Ray Cooney, star of many
well known comedies) featured, amongst others: a benefit fraudster, an alcoholic inspector, a confused
undertaker, a very confused lodger, a comatose hospital porter, a bewildered counselor and a washing
machine with a mind of its own!
There were mistaken identities, accidents of coincidence, words with
double meanings and 'near misses' in timing, which all led to a simple event descending into a nightmare
of lie upon lie until it was hard to tell what was true and what was not. This play
provided a hilarious evening
of entertainment with laugh following laugh as the characters tried to extract themselves out of the chaos they
had put themselves into.
Alison Cunnell, who has been a long standing and very valuable member of the Drayton
Players since 1991 made her debut as producer for this production.
Alison - Full marks on a splendid production!
