Messrs. Mortimer and Cooke, the top writers of British television "sit coms", have lately turned their delightful senses of humor loose on the stage. This live sit com is about two authors of sit coms who are stuck for a new idea. By a neatly contrived accident, each man finds himself getting drunk with the wrong wife. Macho man Charles Summerskill winds up with a hopelessly undomestic sexpot, who is so inept in the kitchen that she burns salad; whereas wimpy Arthur Grey finds himself with a prim and proper expert chef. Charles ends up with a buxom blond and indigestion; Arthur is eating well but is, well, sexually frustrated. Eventually, work forces Charles and Arthur together again. They decide to create a new show based on the recent upheavals in their private lives!

This is an extremely funny play that deserves to be much better known.  Two scriptwriters who, with their wives, have been friends for years, have writers block and a looming deadline for a new TV series.  They meet up for an evening, drink too much home made wine, and end up swapping wives.  This gives them an idea for a TV series if only they can think of an ending for the first episode, and their attempts to do so produce moments of hysterical farce.  We have directed this play twice and are about to do so again, and it has always had audiences laughing so much they can scarcely breathe.
