Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough presents
Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn

When tongue-tied solicitor Tristram is sent along to oversee the sale of a large and crumbling house, reputedly a haunted former brothel, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Hardware tycoon Roland Crabbe and scheming builder Leslie Bainbridge are not easy clients. Roland’s wife, Elizabeth is on the brink of leaving him with the help of her brother Mark and his shrinking-violet fiancée, Kitty. Misunderstandings multiply and play out in every corner of the three-storey house.

In 1979 on the original opening night of Alan Ayckbourn’s brilliantly clever and outrageously funny farce the laughter was so loud it broke the theatre’s tannoy system.
