Chaos reigns in this brand-new farce of mistaken identities and disastrous decisions from the witty pen of star of stage and screen, Nigel Planer (The Young Ones, The Comic Strip Presents, Blackadder, Death in Paradise).
An unlikely bunch of modern-day do-gooders try to make the world a better place, but lose the plot, their morals and even their clothes in all the best traditions of classic British farce.
Timothy has quit the world of banking and now - for all the wrong reasons – wants to give something back and help those less fortunate. Along with his brazen and shameless PR agent, he plans a charity auction to raise money for good causes. He misguidedly enlists the help of narcissist TV personality, Matthew Board – a man clearly on the edge in more ways than one. Matters are made worse by Sir Ommany John, a geriatric world-famous artist who still has an eye for the ladies; Katia, a confused Finnish exchange student and not to mention Timothy’s crazed ex-wife who is out for revenge…and will the plasterer ever turn up?
The doors slam and the double entendres flow and with more misunderstandings and mayhem than you can shake a charity collection box at, this play will have you in stitches and make you question if things really are, All Above Board.
The world premiere of this hilarious production will take place in Merseyside on the 23rd August and then it goes on tour to venues up and down the UK.
‘Don’t ask me…It’s All Above Board!’
