"Out of Order" by Ray Cooney

Show Dates

"Out of Order" played to rave reviews and sold out houses. "I laughed so hard my face hurt" was a common lament!

"Out of Order", a contemporary play written in 1990, takes place in a suite at the Westminster Hotel in London. Richard Willey, a Junior Minister in Margaret Thatcher’s government, has checked into the hotel but is supposed to be attending an all night session of Parliament. Instead he has arranged a rendezvous with a secretary of a minister from the opposing party, a Miss Jane Worthington. Their ardor is quickly dampened when they find a man stuck in the window of their suite, his neck apparently broken by the window falling closed as he was trying to crawl through. Since reporting the man’s death would be proof of their tryst, Richard convinces Jane to hide the body so he can call his able-bodied assistant George Pigden to take care of it.

George arrives, and with the help of a past-his-prime waiter they seem to have things in control, despite the interfering Manager of the hotel, who is intent on getting Richard to Parliament. Everything takes on a whole new spin with the arrival of Jane’s husband, Ronnie, Richard’s wife, Pamela, and the Nurse George hired to take care of his aging mother. How the plot is resolved is a classic bit of British comedy, reminiscent of Benny Hill and Monty Python.

Director: Josh Krushenick and Producer Ruth Ann Pattee.
