It would be difficult to find many faults with this hilariously funny play. The set of the lounge in a Yorkshire country manor house in the 1930s was particularly impressive. It was a credit to those responsible for the construction, decor and the suitable props. Every member of the ten-strong cast was right for the part from the blustering Colonel Craddock to the hopelessly inept Police Inspector Pratt and from Bunting [the inebriated butler] to the very ladylike Mildred Bagshot. The script by Pater Gordon is full of innuendos, witty comments and occasional spoonerisms guaranteed to reduce the audience to helpless laughter. I congratulate all who were in any way concerned with this production.
