It Runs in the Family by Ray Cooney

It Runs in the Family

 Set in a  hospital, It Runs in the Family contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex wife, a punkish son and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.

The second play of our 2015/2016 Season, Directed by Terry Gallager, was performed from Wed 3rd to Sat 6th Feb 2016.

The Cast is as follows:
