|Synopsis||Rough, ready and wealthy retired Northern businessman, Albert Prescott, had an unfortunate accident on the Golf course, leaving his libido somewhat deflated. His titled wife Lady Fiona, is rightly frustrated. To make matters worse, they are preparing yet another dinner party for their only daughter, Melanie and her umpteenth boyfriend. She is still looking for Mr Right to no avail. Each new boyfriend brings a present to show her parents he has good career prospects and is worthy of her affections.
When new suitor, Jeremy arrives dressed as Clarence the dumb clown, all hell breaks loose. His real career is in the field of hypnotherapy. Albert sees a chance to regain his prowess in the bedrooom with the help of Jeremy's therapeutic powers.
However, things don't go to plan. Albert is cured and Fiona unwittingly takes on Alberts's persona and vice versa. When Fiona makes a play for Jeremy, Albert and Melanie try to avert a major matrimonial embarrrassment.|
|Cast||2F 2 M (minimum 4)|
Albert ( Late forties) Fiona (Late forties) Melanie (Twenties) Jeremy (Twenties)
|Production||An open stage with the minmum of props ensures the play can be paced as the characters weave in and out of the action. Albert and Fiona should contrast well with their different personalities, especially when their roles are reversed. Melanie and Jeremy should remain in costume only taking off their face make-up towards the end of the play.|
