Dick & Harry
by Ray Cooney & Michael Cooney
27 - December 19, 2009
Directed by Rhonda Clark
A madcap romp with rapid-fire dialogue that would do Preston Sturges proud - all
youíre missing is Cary Grant in a negligee!
Tom and Linda are a couple desperate
to adopt a baby. If they can impress the social worker that the adoption agency
sends for a site visit, a child will be theirs. Trouble rears its ugly head when
Tomís brothers, Dick and Harry arrive. Devil-may-care Dick prefers smuggling to
a regular job, and daffy Harry works at the local hospital morgue, but both are
eager to help their big brother.
The brothers' "help" produces cases of illegal
brandy, a bag of body parts, two illegal immigrants from Kosovo and a Russian
mobster. Lies pile on top of lies and mayhem ensues until things couldnít
possibly get worse. Or could they? Of course, they can!
