A hilarious farce…
When Henry Perkins returns with the wrong briefcase containing £735,000, he sets in motion a frantic chase to leave the country (as he realizes that the money is probably ‘ill gotten gains’ and won’t be reported lost). He involves his wife Jean and their two friends Vic and Betty, two policemen investigating separate cases, a bemused taxi driver and a Dutch passerby.
The action of the play – which is continuous – takes place on a winter’s evening in the Fulham house of Henry and Jean Perkins. All the parts are fun to act. The leading parts are Henry, Jean, Betty and Vic.
