Todd Pullan, Artistic Director is excited to produce this hilarious comedy farce about a newlywed couple that lives in a second floor flat in the Thames Valley of England. Peter Hunter age range (25-35); the husband is Manager of a sub-branch of the National United Bank. Peter’s wife (25-35) innocently completes a sales order from the Scandinavian Import Company looking to sell crystal to supplement their income. Brian Runnicles (25-35), the chief cashier at the bank brings up the first shipment and others that contain pornographic photos, films, books and eventually Customer Service Agents, Susan and Barbara follow (20-35). These British prostitutes arrive and eventually attempt to entice the bank inspector, Mr. Needham (40-50) who is occupying a spare room of the flat. Eleanor Hunter (50-60), Peter’s mother arrives in all her glory with many suitcases, perpetual flowers and a fancy for Mr. Leslie Bromhead (50-65) who is Peter’s boss and Bank District Manager. Superintendent Paul (50-65) of the local police force and a Deliveryman round off the cast.
