There can be some double casting if cast supply is small, or go the full blown cast if you’ve got a lot of people.

4 – 5 Men  2 – 4 Women


90 minutes


Reginald “Plank” Plank, and Thelonius “Tipsy” Plank are the adopted adult children of Lady Aberline Plank, an eccentric millionaire.   She has raised them to solve mysteries, by pitting them against each other in “friendly” competition.   When Lady Aberline is poisoned herself, the brothers must work together to solve the crime.  Together with their suicidal chauffeur Snyvling, the brothers find themselves on a trans-Atlantic ship and solve numerous crimes along the way.   Full of numerous physical comedy bits, verbal banter.  An all ages show, great for High School Theatre programs, colleges, and community theatres.
