Alan Ayckbourn’s version of the first of the famous Aldwych farces was produced by the National Theatre. It is the story of an unsuccessful inventor who inherits the life interest in a fortune which is to revert on his death to his cousin George Maitland. As Cousin George is thought to have died abroad, the inventor has the brilliant idea of “dying” so that he can resurrect himself as his cousin and avoid paying his enormous debts. Complications arise in the form of George’s wife, another Maitland imposter (the butler’s brother) and finally the real George Maitland himself!
This wonderful comedy is full of 1920’s spirit, pace and dash – and lots of wonderful characters, both male & female!
Our director for this Spring 2015 production is Polly Bray, whose attention to detail and gift for comedy were last displayed in Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor at the Tacchi-Morris Theatre a few years ago.
