CASH ON DELIVERY
Noarlunga Theatre Company

Written By: Michael Cooney
Directed By: Linda Lawson

We are holding a 2nd round of auditions- date TBA, to find the 'right' male actors to be involved in this very funny play:

Cash on Delivery is a fast-paced hysterical British farce, with mistaken identity, cross talking, slamming doors and at least one dead body.
Eric having lost his job, stumbles upon a scheme to scam the Dept. of Social Security(DSS) for the entitlement of a former lodger. Eric turns the DSS scam into a highly lucrative cash flow, by using his unwitting current lodger Norman Bassett at the heart of a series of elaborate deceptions to keep the cash flowing. It all happens so easily he doesn’t know how to end the deception, which is when he receives a visit from DSS inspector. Eric entwines Norman in his deceptions, with his good wife concerned only for their marriage unawares of the deceptions or even that he has lost his job!

The pace, comedy and drama build as more characters are introduced, all at cross purposes
