 A comedy for seven Women, five Men and one small Boy !

  Don't be concerned that the occasion revolves around the funeral of an elderly Father - not usually an occasion for hilarity, because when the family concerned numbers amongst it's members a Wellington clad Cook who bakes almondless almond cakes, another who's convinced his shopping trolley is a clever Dog called Rover (he's already been taught to beg!), and a Sister who's a happy inmate of a Psychiatric home the proceedings are bound to be lively!

  Add to this a posthumous joke played by a Father on three of his Daughters and the fact that they are not exactly a close-knit family and the scene is set for a scorching comedy of personalities and situations.
