Out of Order

A British Farce
By Ray Cooney

Aug 15 to Sept 1, 2018

St. Jacobs Country Playhouse


From the pen of Ray Cooney, the master of British Farce, comes a gleeful, Olivier® Award-winning comedy that will have you doubled over in laughter.

Richard Willey, a married Government Minister with a “hands-on” approach to his work, uses the backdrop of an all-night parliamentary debate to spend a naughty evening at the Westminster Hotel with Jane Worthington, one of the Opposition’s typists. But things go disastrously wrong when they discover a body in their hotel suite, forcing Willey to call on his hapless secretary, George Pigden, to clean up his caddish mess and avoid a political scandal.

An orchestral effort of entrances, pratfalls and rejoinders ensues as uninvited guests congregate in Suite 648, including Jane’s agitated husband, an unscrupulous waiter, confused maid, frustrated Hotel Manager, the proper Mrs. Willey, and bossy Nurse Foster.

Surrender to the silliness of summer with this fun-filled poke at public life.
