In this farcical comedy, Tom and his wife are about to adopt a baby. His brothers are anxious to help make a good impression on the woman from the agency who has arrived to check on the home and lifestyle of the prospective parents. Unfortunately Dick, who has stashed boxes of smuggled brandy and cigarettes in the house, and Harry, who is in possession of a cadaver he is planning to sell illegally to a medical school, fail miserably. The adoption agency representative is aghast – and the stow-away immigrants who do not speak English are no help at all!

 

CHARACTERS

Tom Kerwood: (male, late 20’s to early 30’s): A likable young man who is awaiting to adopt a baby with his wife. Has a solid head on his shoulder, but gets swept up in the madness of his brothers’ schemes.

Dick Kerwood: (male, mid 20’s to early 30’s): One of Tom’s two brothers. Fancies himself as a lovable rouge. Tries to help out Tom financially by smuggling illegal cigarettes and alcohol using Tom’s car.

Harry Kerwood: (male mid 20’s to early 30’s): One of Tom’s two brothers. Eager to help, but dim. In an effort to help Tom buy the house he rents, he has taken a cadaver from the hospital he works at, and buried it in the yard to drop the property value.

Linda Kerwood: (female, late 20’s to early 30’s): Tom’s wife. An attractive and bright woman. Though she loves her husband, she has very little patience for his brothers and their antics, seeing them as a bad influence on Tom.

Katerina: (female, mid 20’s to early 30’s): An attractive but strong Kosovan woman who stowed away while Dick smuggled crates of alcohol across the border. Speaks very little English throughout the play, instead speaking in a foreign tongue.

Andreas: (male, age can vary. Character is 80, but very physical). Katerina’s grandpa who snuck across the border with her and has now ended up in Tom’s house. Proceeds to drink crates of alcohol that Dick smuggled into town. Speaks very little English throughout the play, instead speaking in a foreign tongue.

Mrs. Potter: (female, age 40-60): The head of the adoption agency. A formidable woman with a no-nonsense attitude. Is not pleased with all the mishaps happening about her, as Tom tries to make everything seem as though it’s perfectly normal.

Constable Downs: (male, mid 30’s to mid 50’s): A police officer investigating the suspicious behavior happening around Tom’s house. Has inconvenient timing, and continues to pop up and investigate at the worst possible moments for Tom.

Boris: (male, late 30’s to mid 50’s): A sharply dressed European man. He is dangerous and has come looking for Andreas and Katerina.
