Lindsay Little Theatre is staging Funny Money, a British farce by Ray Cooney.

Presented with permission of Samuel French Inc., and directed by Beth Harrington and Tarina Koty, Funny Money follows the adventures of Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered CPA accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase, discovering it full of money. He assumes it’s illicit cash, decides to keep it and rushes home to his confused wife to book one-way tickets out of the country. Enter a detective who thinks Henry has been soliciting in the tavern loo (he was counting the money) and a second detective declaring Henry Perkins is dead. Henry’s briefcase was found in the Thames near a corpse with bullet holes in his head. Henry’s attempts to extricate himself from this impossible situation lead to increasingly hysterical situations.

LLT’s production of Funny Money stars Mike Crosmaz, Reece David, Anthony Jackson, Carolyn MacLean, Ian MacLean, Seamus McCann, Kyle Robinson, and Miranda Warren, with a production crew that includes Logan Gerzymisch, Liz Infante, Chris Macaulay, Trish McVeigh, and Teresa Smart.

Show dates are December 1, 2, 8 and 9 at 7:00 p.m., with matinee performances on December 3 and 10 at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $20 each, and are available online at LLT website – follow the link to Eventbrite.
