Out of Order

By Ray Cooney
April 2018

Tory Minister Richard Willey is about to embark on a night of passion with the Labour Leader’s typist, Jane Worthington, in room 648 of the Westminster Hotel. Naturally, things don’t run as smoothly as Mr Willey anticipates and their secret liaison is drastically hindered by the discovery of a dead body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window.

Enlisting the help of his hapless private secretary George Pigden, Willey’s sticky situation goes from bad to worse with the arrival of his loving wife, Jane’s distraught husband, an unscrupulous waiter, a frustrated hotel manager, the bossy Nurse Foster, and a Spanish maid.
