Mr. Cooney is truly the leading contemporary practitioner of a great theatrical tradition the sex farce. Two Into One is about nothing more than the hilarious attempts of a Member of Parliament to arrange a dalliance with a secretary for the P.M. in an out of the way little hotel. Unfortunately, he engages one of his aides to arrange the whole thing. The aide is something of a charming bumbler and he gets everything all mixed up. Also on hand are the pompously disapproving hotel manager, a venal ethnic waiter and a female Labour politician who crusades against pornography on the one hand, while on the other she is trying to lure the bumbling civil servant into bed!

Most people say that "Run for Your Wife" is Ray Cooney's best farce, but not me.  "Two into One" is brilliant with non-stop humour and mahem form beginning to end.  If you have the budget, use the revolving stage, but this can be done with scene changes if they can be carried out super-fast.
