A Mad Breakfast
by I. M. Gray
Short Play, Comedy / 4m, 6f
One of the funniest one-acts ever written. Hilarious farce dealing with what happened when Jones and Miss Brown, practical jokers, told each of the guests at their boarding house that Mr. Long, a wealthy visitor, was especially interested in their individual hobbies. Long is told the house is an insane asylum. The results are a riot.
