Telling his wife he is in an all night debate he prepares to make the most of Government money by entertaining the lovely Jane Worthington (Caroline Palmer), secretary to the opposition – and a fair bit younger.
But their plans are scuppered when they find a dead body (played by Steve Henley) at the window.
Instead of telling the police about the body an elaborate plan erupts to get rid of it – enter the excellent Neill Pearce as George Pigden, Willie's downtrodden sidekick.
It would not do to say too much more for fear of giving away the plot, but believe it or not the window and the cupboard also play a central part, along with Brian Beaney who plays the money raking waiter.
George Holmes does a fantastic portrayal of sleazy minister, Willie, who somehow manages to extricate himself from every sticky situation leaving poor old George Pigden dodging heart failure at every turn.
Nurses, mothers, wives, husbands and managers all play a part in this brilliant play which is sometimes confusing, sometimes a little rude, but more often than not hysterically funny.
