“Move Over Mrs Markham” by Ray Cooney and John Chapman
Directed by Sean Dwyer
Philip Markham is a straight-laced London publisher who agrees to let his business partner, Henry Lodge, borrow his apartment for the evening to "entertain" Henry’s latest girlfriend. At the same time, Linda Lodge persuades Joanna Markham to let her borrow the apartment, so she can entertain her lover.
What nobody knows is that the interior designer, who had been decorating the apartment for the past three months, has decided that this was the night he and the au pair would try out the Markham’s new round bed! The Markhams are delayed in leaving the apartment as Olive Harriet Smythe (a no-sex-please very successful author of children’s books) has unexpectedly arrived looking for a new publisher, so when all three couples converge on the apartment, expecting to find it empty, the ultimate in chaos, confusion and madcap hilarity ensues.
What people have said about the play:
- Was a real farce – in fact it brought the house down
- Funniest show I've seen this year. If laughter cures what ails you – this is your prescription!
- The show is designed to be carefully organised chaos – the wit was non-stop riotous
- A very entertaining night at the theatre and not one to be missed.
