Evening shows are on Thursday 24th, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th November 2016.
A billionaire has bequeathed all of his assets to his only daughter Constance -
except the 22-million-pound yacht he wanted Josephine to have, a 25 million-pound art
collection left to Renee and some priceless vintage automobiles willed to Marjorie.
Constance arrives at her father's mansion with her lawyer, determined to find out who
these women are and to buy them off or contest the will.
The butler seems to hold the key and she learns from him that the three sultry ladies
were her father's lovers. She also discovers that the yacht, the art and the cars have
vanished, all having been sold to The Bimbo Corporation. Could the butler be behind the
shenanigans - and is he carrying on with all of the ladies in question? Does the elderly,
deaf housekeeper really have a pet rat? Can the bumbling detective hired by Constance
really be so inept, linguistically as well as professionally? And why has the butler hired
an actress to play his wife?
"Full of laughs and mile-a-minute dialogue. The hilarity builds. Whoever comes to see
this play needs to bring lots of Kleenex for the tears of laughter." - The Winchester
"Excellent physical comedy. Truly remarkable characters." - Woodland Daily Democrat
"For Parker, farce is serious business. You must see this romp." - The Sacramento
