Synopsis

Set in a hospital, It Runs In The Family contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex wife, a punkish son and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.

“My glasses steamed up with laughter… A must for the bruised in spirit and the young at heart” ~ Sunday Times, London

“Tickles the funny bones quite shamelessly” ~ Sunday Express, London

“As in every good farce from Ben Travers to Joe Orton, the location becomes a madhouse filled with an epidemic of unbridled lunacy” ~ London Financial Times
