THE autumn drama season at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage continues with Funny Money.

A hilarious comedy filled with innuendo and cruelly funny turns, the plot centres around a birthday dinner Jean has prepared for her mild-mannered accountant husband Henry.

Good friends Betty and Vic are expected any minute and Jean is frantic because Henry is late.

When he eventually arrives, Jean finds he is not quite the man he used to be.

He wants to emigrate immediately and with good reason - a briefcase he accidentally picked up on the Underground is stuffed with bundles of £50 notes amounting to £735,000.

But if getting the money was easy, keeping it proves harder.

Two police inspectors call at the house and Henry, Vic, Betty and a bemused Jean are forced into a frantic game of cat and mouse as the two couples assume all sorts of identities in their battle to keep the money.

An all-star cast is led by Chris Ellison - better known as DI Burnside in ITV's The Bill - and John Altman - the notorious EastEnders' Nick Cotton.

The show runs from Tuesday, September 19, until Saturday, September 23 and has all the ingredients for a hilarious evening of fun, frolics and farce.

Tickets start at £11.50 but discounts are available if you book tickets for more than one play in the drama season.

For more information and to book tickets, call the box office on 08700 131 030 or visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk
