An amateur con artist claims benefits for imaginary residents of his household in a scheme to defraud welfare, to the chagrin of his neighbors. But in this quintessential British farce by Michael Cooney, his not-so-carefully constructed plan is in danger of falling apart when various bureaucrats show up to investigate his boarding house, resulting in a bevy of comic complications, mistaken identities and slamming doors. Glendale Centre Theatre brings back its successful 2006 production of this raucous comedy by popular demand. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Written by Kyle Crichton
Directed by Mario DiGregorio
He has a fine house at 2104 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, a fortune of one million dollars — not a trivial amount in 1917 because Woodrow Wilson had barely come into power — and a great enthusiasm for lunacy. He collects alligators and prizefighters and rules his family by bluster. Upon entering the room, the butler always inquires deferentially, “You yelled, sir?”
Biddle’s daughter wants to marry the wealthy Angie Duke, but his parents are shocked by the Biddles’ freewheeling lifestyle. How this play resolves itself provides an evening of laughs and fun!
Starring Paul Nieman (Anthony J. Drexel Biddle), Darryl Maximilian Robinson (John Lawless), Andrea Stradling (Mrs. Anthony J. Drexel Biddle), Samantha Claire (Cordelia Biddle), Brian Alexander (Angier Duke) and Libby West (Mrs. Benjamin Duke)
