SYNOPSIS- Written by Britain’s master of farce, Ray Cooney, this larger-than-life tale of comical chaos, is set in a London Hospital, and tells of Doctor Mortimore who must fend off a surprise paternity case. While trying to get himself out of a tricky situation and keeping his wife out of the picture, he plants himself firmly in the middle of a snowball of lies, mistaken identity, inopportune coincidence, and miscommunication. Comedy at its best!
