Out of Order Tour - 2017

This sequel to TWO INTO ONE finds Richard Willey in the Westminster hotel once again. It’s a different young lady this time but a far worse problem arises – in the shape of a dead body stuck in the window of their suite. As Richard shouldn’t be with the young lady in the first place he can’t report the body to either the hotel management or the police so (foolish fellow) he, once more, enlists the aid of George Pigden. Richard’s wife, the wily waiter and the suspicious hotel manager from TWO INTO ONE are again on hand to add to the mayhem which includes a private detective (where did he come from?) and George’s mother’s nurse (where did she come from?)

OUT OF ORDER won London’s Lawrence Olivier Award for “Comedy of the Year” and went on to be another world-wide hit.

Quote from Ray

 

“Having directed my Olivier Award – Winning play in London and all over the world, and hearing all that wonderful raucous laughter from audiences, it has become one of my favourite plays. I’ve up-dated it to present day and fortunately the basic premise of a philandering MP is as likely today as it was when the play was originally written!”
