Synopsis

This was staged at the Royal Opera House in Scarborough, playing for the whole of the summer season but this brave attempt at a straight no-frills stage farce which basked in the Carry On glow was unfortunate in that, Sid James died two months before it opened.

The majority of the team were unwilling or unable to participate due to other work commitments or Sid’s death.  There are nonetheless three stalwart Carry Oners who decided to play along.  Supplying the glamour was Liz Fraser who had just come back to the Carry On series in Behind after starring as the female ‘tottie’ in several of the early Carry Ons. 

The basic plot followed the traditional farce of the trouser dropping, marital problems, ‘More Tea Vicar’ style that has been made famous by Ray Cooney. Jack Douglas takes top billing in this uninspired plot while Peter Butterworth comes out on top as Willie Strokes
