Sally’s husband Geoff is supposed to be home working in his garden. But they’re not at home. Helen’s with Geoff and Roger’s with Sally. Ferris soon discovers their secrets and spends a good deal of time and energy in a dizzy round of hilarious events running from room to room to lobby to restaurant trying to keep everyone separated – – – at some financial reward to himself, of course. “Hotel work is hectic. My sister never said it would be hectic.” Tickets are available at the door. Contains adult themes and situations. For more information, call 872-7170 or visit www.playhouse51.com.
