Chase Me Comrade


Ray Cooney

Directed by Norman Whitelam

31st March - 1st April 1987

A splendidly funny comedy dealing with the defection of a Russian male ballet dancer. He is befriended by a young English ballerina who brings him to the country house of a girlfriend of hers, Nancy Rimmington. Nancyís father is a big noise at the Admiralty, so the antics that she, her boyfriend and the ballerina have to go through to keep the Russianís presence unknown from her father and a visiting Government official supply a series of hysterically funny scenes. Itís a riot from beginning to end.
