Hapless MEP Philip Wardrobe has a busy day ahead of him, balancing his less-than-irreproachable political career with his attempts to start a family. As he prepares for his girlfriend to fly in from Kettering for an afternoon of fertile frolics, his plan to be voted President of the European Parliament is foiled at every turn by unpredictable colleagues: uncouth Yorkshiremen, irate Turks and amorous Frenchwomen... to say nothing of the mysterious man in the linen cupboard. Sit back and enjoy the door-slamming shenanigans as Philip’s political and personal life collide in a Strasbourg hotel suite, with hilarious results.Performers Sian Brooke (Sasha), Dermot Canavan (Gendarme), James Fleet (Philip Wardrobe), Anna Francolini (Beatrice Renard), Huw Higginson (Andre), Carol Macready (Frau Flugelhammerlein), Carla Mendonca (Nicola Daws), Richard Moore (Eddie Fredericks), Gary Oliver (Mehmet), Roderick Smith (Archbishop/Doctor).
