CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Unsuccessful inventor Aubrey Allington inherits the life interest in a fortune, which reverts on his death to his cousin, George Maitland. As cousin George is thought to have died abroad, Aubrey has the brilliant idea of 'dying' so that he can resurrect himself as his cousin and thus avoid payment of his own enormous debts. But, in the best tradition of farce, complications arise in the form of Georgeâs wife, another Maitland imposter (the butlerâs brother) and finally the real George himself! This hilarious escapade also includes a sharp-witted yet hard-of-hearing aunt, numerous hapless servants and one of the most celebrated female characters in the history of farce: Aubreyâs ever-inventive wife, Louise.
