A British farce by
Ray Cooney & John Chapman

The legendary master playwright, Ray Cooney, delivers the spirit of true farce.

“…a fiendishly clever farce that gets madder and funnier as it goes along.” – Daily Mirror

“… the ceaseless bombardment of familiar nonsense [had me] laughing outright.” – London Daily Mail

“…it has pace, precision and wit.” – London Daily Mirror

Timothy Westerby is overworked, underpaid, stressed-out, and his daughter is getting married in what he thinks is an overly-lavish and expensive ceremony. Timothy is ripe for a nervous breakdown – and on the morning of the wedding, he has one! It takes the form of ‘Polly’, the most gorgeous, voluptuous girl who apparently just wants to give herself to Timothy. Pity that she is but an apparition. The fact that Polly is an apparition is of course not apparent to Timothy who is convinced that Polly is totally real and is delighted to have this sexy guest at the wedding. Timothy’s wife, his mother-in-law, his daughter and the groom’s parents take a slightly different view of this “uninvited guest”!
