2011 - It Runs In The Family

by Ray Cooney

It Runs In The Family

Directed by Eileen Taylor

Dr David Mortimore is about to address a neurological convention which will probably earn him a Knighthood. While putting the final touches to his speech, an old flame arrives and announces that their liaison years ago resulted in a son who is downstairs desperate to meet his father. Frantic to hide this catastrophic news from his wife and the hospital authorities, David is forced to invent not one, but two non-existent husbands.
