Roland Dickerby, formerly of the Kindly Mutual Insurance Company, runs a health farm with his wife Julia, bought with the proceeds of a hefty insurance payout on the demise of Julia's first husband, the charming rogue, Sidney. Life isn't easy for Roland; a healthy lifestyle is not exactly his cup of carrot juice, his formidable mother-in-law, Olivia keeps a very beady eye on him, and he is constantly harassed by portly guests manically in search of carbohydrates of the sweet variety. But today, fate has something extra special in store for Roland: Sidney has decided to resurrect himself and turns up at the farm, just as Vanessa, the wife of Roland's ex-boss from the Kindly Mutual, checks in for a health giving visit. A fast, furios and frantic farce.
The author Dave Freeman also wrote "A Bedfull of Foreigners" and "Key for Two" both of which we staged several years ago.
