Interior Set

Based on a very popular British sit com, this riotously funny play is classic British sex farce. When Mildred and Ethel go off on a trip to Paris, the "mice will play." Egged on by Ethel's philandering husband Humphrey Pomfrey, George agrees to invite two charming little sex kittens over. Well, you know already what happens, don't you the wives come home prematurely.

"The audience screamed with laughter as the farcical comedy events unfolded. The plot is simple and slight risque with machine gun quick repartee. Unbridled laughter, by the theatre load." -Brisbane Telegraph

"An amusing evening." -The Middlesex Chronicle
