Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A funeral takes place in the country house formerly owned by the man in the coffin. His sons are confronted with distressing information during the event and set in train a sequence of actions making a bad situation worse. Meanwhile there is a naked man on the roof and an old man stuck in the lavatory.
Content Lots of ribaldry, non sexual nudity and a bit of excrement. Really essential ingredients of British farce.
A View Difficult to believe that this production is not 30 years old, but it is still fun and I laughed quite a lot. Maybe notable in having Peter Dinklage in the cast, now possibly the longest surviving cast member of The Game of Thrones.
