This is a very popular farce by the great playwright Alan Bennett and the Lane End Players certainly did this fantastic play justice
The antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical merry-go-round. Family, friends and the sexual satisfaction of the "corpus" (body) are the ruling passions in this farcical comedy of ill-manners. Through a dance of mistaken identities and carnal encounters, one motto holds fast: "He whose lust lasts, lasts longest."
