Funny Money

By Ray Cooney

Directed by Graham Killeen

Henry Perkins accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase--one filled with money--and decides to keep it. It's probably illicit money anyway, he reasons. Knowing its former owner must have his own briefcase, Henry hurries to book a couple of one-way tickets to Barcelona for him and his wife. Before he can get very far, an irate taxi driver, a corrupt police officer, and some well-meaning friends just looking to celebrate his birthday complicate matters considerably in this hilarious farce.
