Michael Cooney’s riotous farce has all the ingredients for rib-tickling hilarity and offers a colourful selection of character roles. Eric Swan (aided by his Uncle George and unbeknown to his wife, Linda) has pocketed thousands of pounds through fraudulent DSS claims. When Norman Bassett (the lodger) opens the door to Mr Jenkins, the DSS Inspector, deceptive mayhem follows – as do the undertaker, bereavement counsellor, psychiatrist, Norman’s fiancée, a corpse, the ominous Ms Cowper and a rather rebellious washing machine!
Nervous, would be con-man, nice guy who gets caught up in his own scheme.
Eric’s wife, gentle, loving and totally unaware of what’s going on.
Bright, quick-witted, game for anything.
Starchy, his social work is his life, less intelligent than he thinks he is.
Eric’s uncle and partner in crime, congenial but devious.
Very straight forward and naïve, new and dedicated to her job.
Dr. Chapman (male or female)
Marriage counsellor, reads dysfunction into everything.
Very officious and thinks he’s in charge; the undertaker.
A severe D.S.S. inspector, very stiff and military about her job.
Norman’s fiancée, sweet and naïve, worried about Norman.
