ABOUT THE SHOW

"OUT OF ORDER" is a farce written by English playwright Ray Cooney

"OUT OF ORDER" is the sequel to Cooney's "TWO INTO ONE" and has a cast of six men and four women.

The plot revolves around Richard Willey, a Government Junior Minister, who plans to spend the evening with Jane Worthington, one of the opposition’s secretaries. 

Unfortunately for Willey, things go 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 his PPS, George Pigden who, through Richards’s lies sinks further and further into trouble with everybody and ends up going through an identity crisis. 

The situation deteriorates even further with the arrival of Ronnie, Jane’s distraught young husband followed by an unscrupulous waiter, Mrs. Willey and Nurse Gladys making things go completely "OUT OF ORDER."

"OUT OF ORDER" won an Olivier Award for “Comedy of the Year” and is considered a world-wide smash.
