The production kicks off FCT’s 26th season.
It also marks the third season the longstanding company is presenting dinner theatre offerings at Tavern On The Lock.
The comedy follows the misadventures of Draycott Harris, a British TV celebrity that seemingly has everything, including an ultra-modern, push button swinging, apartment of the future.
But Draycott has one large secret. He has no luck with women, which considering his reputation as a notorious stud, makes his bedroom fiascos all the more remarkable.
Draycott enlists the help of his long-lost, worldly, and womanly, wise brother, James, to assist him in the pursuit of his new sexy PR girl, Honey Tooks.
What neither brother anticipates, however, is that Draycott’s long-suffering secretary Julia has been nurturing a growing passion for her boss, which is set to explode.
Add to the mix is Draycott’s housekeeper, Mrs. Finney, whose wild and crazy youth played out at Rolling Stones concerts.
When all hell breaks loose, it does with side-splitting results.
The cast includes the talents of: Donald Crowe as Draycott Harris; Michael Richard King as James Harris; Valeri Roscoe Dedich as Honey Tooks; Jessica Tetro as Julia Sullivan; and Beverly Cooney Poznoski as Mrs. Finney.
The production is directed by Michael A. Bolio.
The production is being presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Due to mature subject matter, it may not be suitable for general audiences.
