a farce by Ray Cooney
Directed by: Barry Hill
Dr Mortimore is about to address a neurologists conference when an old flame turns up and announces their liaison years ago resulted in a son, who is downstairs eager to meet his dad. Frantic to hide the news from his wife and the hospital authorities, he is forced to invent two non-existent husbands and the help of a colleague in this hilarious farce in the true Cooney tradition.

17th Annual Biggest Morning Tea
In 2001 a few of us got together in the first week of June (actually it was me and seven others), and we held our first version of “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”.
It wasn’t all that grand, just a cup of something and a biscuit and we raised the princely sum of $64.00, which we sent to Cancer Council (SA), sort of promising we would do better next time. Since then there have been (15) other “next times”, with another to happen this year on the 1st June, when we will add to the total of $14,839.00 we have raised to date.
Along the way some changes have occurred, an important one being some years ago when the ladies from the Clovercrest Branch of Red Cross took over the catering as part of their commitment to supporting community activities. Since then the tea has been like a finger food lunch, a bit early in the day.
With long time support from Café Verdi at Fairview Green, The Golden Grove Tavern at Surrey Downs, and various other individuals, we also hold a raffle, which is underpinned by TTP donating the nett proceeds from the evening performance held on the same day, which bolsters the amounts raised.
This year it will be THURSDAY 1st JUNE at 10.00am for the 2017 version of this little event, and we look forward to a goodly number attending again this year, but if you can’t be there will be a number of collection boxes at every performance for “IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY” from 14th May to 3rd June.
Some of us don’t need your help, not yet at least, but there many others out there (and unfortunately some within our ranks) who could use all the help that is available.
Cost for the morning tea is $8.00. Please book on 82955266.
