Written by legendary English farceur Ray Cooney and directed by Troy Taylor, “Funny Money” is a brilliant and hilarious comedy of mistaken identity in which the hero of the piece, Henry Perkins, a middle class accountant, accidentally acquires a briefcase containing a substantial amount of ill-gotten cash. Eager to flee the country with his increasingly confused wife, the plot quickly thickens with the arrival of a succession of unexpected visitors. Confused identities, disappearing briefcases, a dash of police corruption and a splash too much alcohol ensures the fun never stops in this rollicking British farce.
