In the home of Dr. Arthur Wicksteed wild and wicked things go on in a Feydeau style fashion.
Along with the lecherous doctor, there is his mountainous wife, a celibate curate who is engaged to the doctor's flat chested spinster sister, a cantilevered sexpot, an invertebrate hypochondriac and an arrogant colonialist. Identities are mistaken, wires crossed and into this mad fun house comes a falsie fitter summoned by the flat chested spinster.
Needless to say things get sorted out in the end, but not without a lot of hilarity along the way. A gorgeously vulgar farce that is a downright celebration of sex and the human body.
PLAYWRIGHT: Alan Bennett (born May 9, 1934) is an English author and actor noted for his work, his boyish appearance and his sonorous Yorkshire accent.
