Staged: The Park Centre, Burgess Hill
In order to be near the racecourse, a crazy but very likeable gang of bookies stay at a country hotel, run by a retired colonel, his wife and their daughter. Secret rooms, sliding panels, mistaken identity and little bit of romance are just some of the main ingredients of this fast paced comedy farce.
