Why Not Stay For Breakfast

 

One critic said of this delightful comedy, “Lots of laughter and a few tears”.

George, a hardened bachelor in his late thirties, is preparing dinner for himself in his apartment when there’s a knock at the door. It’s Louise, a seventeen-year-old “hippie” girl who’s walked out on her boyfriend from the apartment above and wants to borrow the money for her train fare back home. George is horrified – not at the request for finance but by the fact that Louise is, quite clearly, 9 months pregnant. Before the evening is out George has delivered the feisty Louise’s baby and his life will never be the same again.
