Farce / 5m, 5f / Interior / Lovelorn millionaire Oliver Stratton can’t recall the name and address of the only woman he’ll ever love and decides to go to Tibet leaving his fortune to nurse Peggy. This causes the entire household (no-good nephew Derek, his lover Sylvia, Oliver’s noble son George, Oliver’s lady lawyer and even the butler and maid) to devise complex ways to get the will changed in their favor or get into the safe containing the estate’s liquidated assets in cold cash. When the Tibetan lamasery recruiter comes to claim Oliver, Derek plots to convince Oliver that Peggy is addicted to drink and unworthy to inherit. He brings in anti-drink crusader Cora Van Beck to rehabilitate stone-sober Peggy. Plots, partnerships, betrayals, zany ploys plus all sorts of devices are used in this screamingly funny show inwhich the secret killer prepares to bump Oliver offwhen the will gets rewritten the right way. A hilarious, audience-pleasing hit.
