Get ready for your glasses to steam up with laughter: Butterfly Creek Theatre Troupe is performing It Runs in the Family by Britain’s master of farce, Ray Cooney. In this larger-than-life tale of comical chaos, Dr Mortimer (a successful neurologist) must fend off a surprise paternity case: whilst keeping his wife out of the picture, and simultaneously giving a prestigious international lecture that may lead to his knighthood – if done properly. This is a farce though, and as Dr Mortimer tries to get himself out of one sticky situation, he plants himself firmly in the middle of a snowball of lies, mistaken identity, inopportune coincidence and miscommunication. The result is two hours’ worth of laugh-out-loud comedy to banish the winter blues.
