This production was abysmal! The fault probably lies largely with the director, who had the actors all facing out to deliver their lines to the audience rather than the people on stage who they were supposedly talking to. (The actors probably have some responsibility, as well. None of them claimed any TV or film credits in their bios. The acting was all very over-the-top, very presentational, very "thespian-y"....very bad! We left at intermission. It's a shame, because the theater is a lovely facility; I wish it were being put to better use.
Dr. Prentice, a psychiatric doctor in an exclusive, private clinic, is attempting to interview (and seduce) an attractive would-be secretary, Geraldine. Unwittingly surprised by his wife, he hides the girl. The affairs multiply as Mrs. Prentice, being seduced and blackmailed by young bellhop Nicholas Beckett, has promised him the secretarial post. When a government inspector arrives, chaos, underpants and cross-dressing lead the charge. This classic British farce will be sure to have you rolling in the aisles.
