HABEAS CORPUS

SYNOPSIS: 

 

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.
