Synopsis: 

 

A classic mainstream old-style West End comedy - Wedding Day chaos with the Hornett family. Emma Hornett is a domestic tyrant, domineering, house-proud, self-righteous to a fault - and she continuously bullies her ferret-fancier husband Henry and his live-in spinster sister, Edie. Worst of all, she is not amused when her precious daughter chooses orphan sailor Albert Tufnell as a prospective husband. Sparks fly and worms turn as they battle it out in this classic comedy! 

 

PLAYWRIGHTS: Philip King & Falkland Cary wrote 'Sailor Beware in 1958. As well as writing independently and in partnership with others, King and Cary co-wrote a number of other plays, some of which continued the nautical theme: 'Watch it Sailor' (1961) (Sequel to Sailor Beware) and 'Rock-A-Bye Sailor!' (1963)
