Get ready for your glasses to steam up with laughter: Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe is performing It Runs in the Family by Britain’s master of farce, Ray Cooney. In this larger-than-life tale of comical chaos, Dr Mortimer (a successful neurologist) must fend off a surprise paternity case: whilst keeping his wife out of the picture, and simultaneously giving a prestigious international lecture that may lead to his knighthood - if done properly. This is a farce though, and as Dr Mortimer tries to get himself out of one sticky situation, he plants himself firmly in the middle of a snowball of lies, mistaken identity, inopportune coincidence and miscommunication. The result is two hours’ worth of laugh-out-loud comedy to banish the winter blues.
Director Florence McFarlane says “Directing this play is such fun. Rehearsal time passes in an instant as we polish and laugh our way through Ray Cooney’s script. It is some time since I directed his "Out Of Order" which was also a no holds barred comedy: it’ll be an evening of fun to lift your spirits.”
