Harry Douglas, US Ambassador to Britain, spends quiet weekends at his assigned country home outside London, along with his wife and daughter. This weekend, the house should have been empty save for the butler, yet there are more comings and goings than at Grand Central Station.
Simon Goodison entertained as the lecherous Ambassador, showing good comic timing, with Tanya Flewitt and Will Goodison providing fine support as Douglas’ daughter and her boyfriend (who was sometimes required to masquerade as another potential conquest for the Ambassador!) Julia Piper was excellent as the saucy neighobur-French-maid-lover while Dave Bunyon, complete with flamboyant accent and clowning, stole every scene that he was in as a very excitable but paranoid marine.

Former Senator Harry becomes the ambassador to England and is up to his old shenanigans. He tells his wife and daughter he is going on a golf outing and returns to the embassy for a rendezvous. You won’t believe what happens next!
Spend an outrageous weekend at the English home of the American ambassador sweet-talking his wife, chasing his sexy neighbor and having his head turned by his daughter’s boyfriend, who is disguised wearing a dress. Throw in a clumsy secretary, a gung-ho military man and a butler to end all butlers and you are guaranteed an evening of madcap merriment from start to finish.
