    replace him. Stu has decided to stay behind in Hamburg after their tour in Germany and get married....and he
    didn't like Paul taking the piss out of him all the time. A fast paced funny play by best-selling playwright Morley

    Practical jokers Mr. Jones and Miss Brown tell each of the guests that wealthy visitor Mr. Long is especially
    interested in their individual hobbies. They also tell Mr. Long that the boarding house is a lunatic asylum.  
    Hilarity ensues as chaos tops confusion, soon causing Mr. Long to fear for his life.  The madness culminates
    in a crazy séance.  Considered by many to be one of the funniest one-acts ever written.
