    “I know, this all sounds like some crazy plot to a stupid play…”

    It’s 1965 and famed movie star James Redgrave is set to return to the stage after a long absence from the spotlight. To celebrate he throws a small party at his London apartment just hours before the opening night. However amidst the champagne, cold buffet and the arrival of his insufferable mother, he is accidentally incapacitated. But the show must go on. The understudy is horrendously drunk, the director is a complete buffoon and there’s a dead body in the spare room! Will the show be saved at the last minute? or will everything fall to pieces?

    With guest appearances from Julie Andrews, Ann-Margret and Charlie Chaplin, this hilarious satire of Hollywood’s golden age will have you in stitches from start to finish!
