Funny Money

Part of Wakefield Drama Festival 2017

By Ray Cooney

Henry Perkins accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase - one full of money! He assumes it is illicit cash and decides to keep it. Knowing that the former owner must have his briefcase, Henry rushes home to book one way fares to Barcelona.

The doorbell rings. The police detective at the door thinks Henry was soliciting in the men's room of the local pub when actually, he was sitting in the loo counting the cash. The bell rings again. Another detective arrives thinking Henry is dead; a man with bullet holes in his head and Henry's briefcase were found in the Thames.

Henry's inept attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations. Never has this master of farce, Ray Cooney been frenetically funnier!

Part of the 17th annual Wakefield Drama Festival, which takes place at Theatre Royal Wakefield with companies from across the North of England competing for a series of awards. Seven different companies will be judged by a professional adjudicator with awards presented at the end of the week. Seven night pass holders get to vote for their favourite in the Audience Award.
