Bookseller Alec Firth is having an affair with assistant Liz and has craftily organised things so he can go to Spain with her without arousing the suspicions of his wife. What could go wrong?
Plenty!! Arriving on his doorstep, in quick succession, are his Grandma Giles of a mother (come to stay for the duration), his son with a broken ankle, a pregnant daughter and an oversized puppy. Alec’s attempts to escape with Liz are charted to hilarious effect and with wit and ingenuity.
What more can you expect from a man who created and wrote RISING DAMP and gave us the marvellous Rigsby and Miss Jones.
- Mike Shaw as Alec
- Helen Busby as Liz
- Carole Carr as Alec’s wife
