Bourne Footlights will be performing Tons of Money from November 5 to November 7 at Bourne Corn Exchange.

It tells the story of Aubrey, a poor, unsuccessful inventor who lives in a large home in the country with his wife, Louise.

Out of the blue he inherits the life interest in a large inheritance, which will revert on his death to his cousin George.

Louise has the ingenious idea of Aubrey ‘dying’ so that he can resurrect himself as his cousin and thus avoid payment off his enormous debts.

In best farce tradition complications arise as wives and imposters appear. Throw into the mix a batty, deaf old auntie, a maid who is sweet on the butler and an old gardener of very few words and you have the recipe for a rip- roaring comedy.

Tickets priced at £8, (£7 Senior citizens Wednesday only), are on sale at Time for Tea, Bourne cash/cheque only.
