And now for something completely different – a wild romp as a Cabinet Minister attempts a night of passion with a secretary from the Opposition Party, and opposition arrives in all forms! An angry husband, a mild-mannered aid, an unsuspecting wife and a dead body are only a few of the complications in this farce, which won the Olivier Award for Best Play.

Cast: James Lukie, Stephen Flett, Kat Lai, Derek Dorey, Mark Hincks, Heather Goodall, Laura Elkin, Tom Girling, Devin Upham, and Amariah Henry

From the authors of The Evil that Men Do (Amicus, 2004), a fresh new farce in an original production. The wealthy Whiteside family are in for an unexpected reunion at the family cottage, as Fiona Whiteside dallies with her brother-in-law, John, while her husband, Charles, arrives for a weekend with John’s fiancee. All that’s missing are the parents – but not for long! A case of family ties that are a little too tight for comfort.

Cast: Adrian Falconer, Kathryn Morgan, Randall Connoly, Lesley Tumber, Brian Ablett, and Jane Hunter
