The Amorous Ambassador

The Amorous Ambassador, from the pen of playwright Michael Parker, has all the aspects of pure farce where the pace and the slap-stick-over-the-top situations, well rounded and possibly improbable, will give an audience a fun night out.
Smooth talking Harry Douglas – recently appointed American Ambassador to Britain is off for a golfing weekend in Scotland – or so he claims. Instead he returns for a fantasy time dressed as Tarzan and not alone. Unknown to him his daughter takes advantage of the empty house to invite her boyfriend, Joe, for the weekend. Add a bomb scare which brings in Captain South, Head of Embassy Security, a lock down, plus a secretary, obviously not chosen for her secretarial skills, and combine this with the hapless Joe, forced into female attire for most of the play, then for fun bring back the wife – a wife about to reveal all. All of the above is stoically observed by Perkins, a fine example of the best of the best of British butlers …….. or is he? As an added bonus, the doom that surrounds the characters makes the finale for this play one of the best the group has read in a long time. As with the last play – worth another look.
