An amateur con artist claims benefits for imaginary residents of his household in a scheme to defraud welfare, to the chagrin of his neighbors. But in this quintessential British farce by Michael Cooney, his not-so-carefully constructed plan is in danger of falling apart when various bureaucrats show up to investigate his boarding house, resulting in a bevy of comic complications, mistaken identities and slamming doors. Glendale Centre Theatre brings back its successful 2006 production of this raucous comedy by popular demand!
