St Ursula Players present Tom, Dick and Harry
Tom, Dick and Harry, by Ray and Michael Cooney, was first seen at London's Duke of York Theatre in 2005 and was a smash hit with both audiences and critics - but the Kenwood brothers are not your everyday Tom, Dick and Harry.
Tom and his wife Linda are in the final stages of adopting a baby and are nervously awaiting the arrival of the head of the adoption agency, the formidable Mrs Potter.
Unfortunately, at the same time, Dick, who shares the house with Tom and Linda, returns from a French smuggling trip with brandy and cigarettes - and two illegal Kosovan refugees who sneaked into his van in Calais.
Meanwhile, Harry has embarked on an ambitious plan to get the price reduced on the house that Tom and Linda want to buy.
Hilarious mayhem ensues, as Tom must fabricate ever wilder explanations to placate Linda, Mrs Potter and a suspicious policeman.
Charles Spencer of the Daily Telegraph said: "At its considerable best, it ranks amongst Cooney's finest, and frequently found me helpless with laughter."
