Fawlty Towers meets Benny Hill in this hilarious, face-paced farce with a succession of enough disasters and misunderstandings, twists and turns to create the perfect comedy of chaos… and just the thing for an end-of-winter celebration.
The setting for the play is the dingy “Hotel Heinz” on the border between France and Germany where the inept staff create pandemonium when they book two couples into the same guest room! Mistresses, mistaken identities, misunderstandings and unexpected wives along with food poisoning outbreaks, monks and nun and a Bulgarian lady cyclist all add to the mayhem during the “Festival of St. Wolfgang.”
Some slightly suggestive situations.
