Maitland Repertory Theatre presents Out of Order by Ray Cooney.
Richard Willey, a Labor Junior Minister, plans under the cover of an all-night commons sitting, to spend the night in Suite 648 at the four star Westminster Hotel, London, with Jane Worthington, one of the opposition’s junior secretaries.
So the seeds are sown (or in Richard’s case, not) for a hilarious Ray Cooney farce which won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy of the year in 1991.
Things start to go disastrously wrong early on. When expecting only to handle Jane’s body, Richard (or Dickie as he likes Jane to call him) discovers the body of a man trapped in the suite’s unreliable sash window. Desperately trying to get out of what has suddenly become an extremely sticky situation, Richard summons his trusty Parliamentary private secretary, George Pigden, to the Hotel to sort things out.
