Last of the Mohicans
It is a hilarious farce, which tells the sorry tale of a night in the life of luckless, middle-aged church furniture manufacturer, Dominic Studley. While Dominic’s loving wife Ita has departed on an overnight pilgrimage ‘down the country’ in search of the blessings of St. Verilia, Dominic has seized the opportunity to indulge in a little adultery with flighty Grace, who is also the principal boy in the local panto. Grace’s pilot husband Seamus is conveniently marooned in London courtesy of a baggage handlers’ strike. Grace promptly arrives chez Dominic with fellow Thespian, the reluctant Finbar, in tow as chaperone. All goes reasonably well until the unexpected arrival of Ita, followed by Seamus…..!!The final outcome isn’t quite as Dominic had envisaged!
