It’s three days before Christmas and high-flying Doctor David Mortimore, about to deliver a prestigious speech on which may rest a knighthood, must deal with something that has just now come back to haunt him: something eighteen years old and apparently delinquent. Dr Mortimore’s efforts to deal with his primary concern, that his wife (at the hospital to hear his lecture) not meet the evidence of his past, sets off a cascading disaster of conflicting fictions to which he and others must react ever more creatively.
As in all good British farces throw in a confused Sergeant, a severe hospital matron, an elderly patient doing wheelies in his wheelchair and various hospital staff running in and out of doors impersonating everyone else and you have an epidemic of hilarity, laughs and antics of epic proportion!
