A comedy by Ray Cooney

Directed by William Thorndike

About the Play:

Henry Perkins is a mild-mannered office worker living a mundane, middle-class life, until one day when he accidentally switches brief cases with someone on the subway commuting home. When he opens it up, he finds that it is full of cash. Naturally, he does what any reasonable person would do in this situation--books the first international flight and plans to start a new life in a new country. His wife, who is happy with their mundane middle class life, decides that this is too much for her and that this is the perfect opportunity to take up drinking as a hobby. Before long, a police officer shows up, and another police officer shows up, and the cab that’s supposed to drive them to the airport shows up, and a couple that was invited to dinner arrives. Everything gets ever more twisted as people try to keep their stories straight about who knows which fake identity, all while trying to avoid getting caught by the police--and the person looking for their briefcase full of cash!
