From the much-loved playwright of The Foreigner comes a new production of one of the funniest plays ever written.

Aided by a rag-tag team that includes friends, a would-be lover and an oblivious boss, creative acts of desperation quickly dissolve into utter mayhem. The twists and turns of this madcap comedy lead to an ending that leaves you feeling happily hoodwinked! Learn More »
