Successful chat show host Draycott Harris has a problem … he has no luck with women. While worldly-wise housekeeper Mrs Finney struggles to keep his gadget-ridden Mayfair flat in order, Draycott’s pursuit of attractive new PR girl Honey Tooks proves far more difficult than he expects – especially when elder brother James turns up to help, and long-suffering secretary Julia’s growing passion for her boss finally reaches boiling point!
Rumpus returns with all its “immaculate comic timing” (Derbyshire Times) to bring this hilarious West End farce to the stage.

“bright, frothy, knockabout nonsense” (Daily Mirror)
