Everton Village Players needed a painting by Pablo Picasso for their latest production, the comedy, My Friend Miss Flint.
However, purchasing an original was a bit beyond their budget, so director Barry Nicholls’son in law painted one that was inspired by the Spanish master’s Woman sited on a char, ready to play a pig part in proceedings.
In a plot full of twists and turns, Tom Lambert a botanist and TV gardening personality, has an unexpected one-night stand with Lucy.
Shortly afterwards he receives a call from the Inland Revenue.
As the plot unravels and the ‘Picasso’ vanishes, it then turns out Tom’s ex-wife and accountant, Sarah, has been rather economical with the truth about his earnings
Tom’s friend Albert, a pub entertaininer, has also been equally cavalier about his own tax affairs.
The arrival of two tax officials causes panic.
How Tom attempts to extricate himself from this financial tangle provides sparkling moments of bluff and double bluff in this highly entertaining comedy.
The play will take place in Everton Village Hall from Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th of February at 7:30pm. Tickets are £6 (£5 NUS) on 01777 817395) or www.evertonvillageplayers.co.uk.
