Ray Cooney’s Out Of Order, The Olivier Award winning comedy is coming to the Theatre Royal Nottingham.
When Richard Willey (Jeffrey Harmer), a Government Junior Minister, plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington (Susie Amy), one of the Opposition’s typists, in the Westminster Hotel, things do disastrously wrong – beginning with the discovery of a body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window.
Desperately trying to get out of an extremely sticky situation, Richard calls for his secretary, George Pigden (Shaun Williamson) who, through Richards’ lies sinks further and further into trouble with everybody and ends up going through an identity crisis. Things go from bad to worse with the arrival of Jane’s distraught young husband and with the addition of an unscrupulous waiter (James Holmes), Mrs Willey (Sue Holderness) and Nurse Foster things really come to a head!
Ray Cooney is today recognised theatrically and publicly as ‘the master of farce’ (The Telegraph) whose credits include Run For Your Wife, Funny Money and Move Over Mrs Markham. This stellar company includes Shaun Williamson (EastEnders, Extras); Sue Holderness (Only Fools & Horses, Green Green Grass); Susie Amy (Footballers’ Wives); James Holmes (Miranda) & Arthur Bostrom, best known for his iconic role as ‘Officer Crabtree’ in classic sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo, will join the cast as the ‘Hotel Manager’.
