Overview

A riotous farce in the tradition of the French farces written by Georges Feydeau*. Not just a farce but an absurd piece of nonsense in the style of John Cleese's Fawlty Towers*. Interpret it as you will, it is an absurdly funny mix up that could happen to any of us, well maybe just some of us.

Reviews: 'So funny I laughed out loud.'

*Georges Feydeau was a French playwright of the era known as the Belle Époque. He is remembered for his many lively farces. He wrote over sixty plays and was a forerunner of absurdist theatre.

*Basil Fawlty is an inept and slightly out-of-his-head English hotel manager, who is tortured by 'that annoying section of the general public who insist on staying at hotels'. Fawlty is constantly berated by his wife, and his efforts are continually hampered by their Spanish waiter, Manuel.

About the Author

I was born in London England in 1953, which makes me a baby boomer I think. Dad ran a market stall in Woolwich’s Beresford Square selling anything and everything. A natural Cockney salesman with all the patter that goes with it but when he was told to give it up or die from the cold, we packed up shop and migrated to Australia.

In my youth I always enjoyed my old Dad’s tales of his adventures in the navy in WWII and of his childhood hop picking in Kent, I got my love of storytelling from my Dad. I wrote a book on cider in 2008 after being awarded a Churchill Fellowship to travel around the world and drink and research cider, the cider book sold out. I followed the success of my cider book by writing a series of madcap comic extravaganzas: Bigfoot Littlefoot & West. I followed the Bigfoot books with my Jack Hamma action adventure series starting with Shakespeare on the Roof. Then in 2015 I wrote three romantic travel adventures starting with Sex Sardines and Sauerkraut.

This is the bit where I state that I am happily living the good life on our 5 acre property, on the beautiful island of Tasmania, spending my time walking, cycling, planting trees, growing vegetables and writing the odd book, very odd some people say.
