‘Not Now Darling’ is set in an elegant fur salon in Mayfair where owner Gilbert Bodley is scheming to seduce a beautiful, but married stripper with the aid of a mink coat. His scheme goes badly awry when her husband buys the coat at a reduced price for his own mistress. Frenzied attempts to retrieve the coat and hide the now naked stripper lead to the kind of elements that make up ‘The Great British Farce’.
It might not be strictly PC but it has guaranteed belly laughs galore with a true celebration of this quirky Cooney and Chapman farce. With fur coats, mix-ups, mistresses and scantily clad ladies, the play twists and turns until you don’t know who is going behind whose back.
This play was first performed by the Lamproom Theatre Company in July 2000.
