A Farce by Ray Cooney
When Henry eventually arrives for his birthday dinner, his wife, Jean finds him not quite the man he used to be. He wants to migrate to Barcelona immediately and with good reason: the briefcase he accidentally picked up on the underground is stuffed with £50 notes amounting to £735,000. But if getting the money was easy, keeping it proves harder as Henry, a bemused (and tipsy) Jean and dinner guests, Vic and Betty are forced into a frantic game of cat and mouse. Hilarious innuendo and cruelly funny turns of fate ensue as the two couples assume all sorts of identities in their battle to keep the money.
