Flying Feathers by Derek Benfield

Directed by Ray Court

Taunton Thespians join us to showcase their take on Derek Benfield’s 1987 farce, ‘Flying Feathers’.

When Chief Constable Henry Potterton and his sister arrive at the peaceful country house of their late, lamented brother Bernard, they are astonished to find several scantily clad ladies wandering about. It transpires that during Bernard’s visit to a religious commune, his housekeeper has turned the place into a “house of sin”. Her endeavours to hide the truth lead to a series of hilarious comings and goings involving a curious vicar and an accident-prone window cleaner. The result is comedy gold.

This amateur production of “Flying Feathers” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
